Stanford head coach Jim Harbaugh demands physical toughness out of his players. Next season, the Cardinal will showcase that toughness with a heavy dose of power running. Returning to the Farm will be a two-sport superstar at running back, ready to make his last season in Palo Alto a special one.

Senior Toby Gerhart will look to build on a phenomenal junior season. The 6-1 237 pound tailback finished third in the Pac-10 with 1,136 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2008. The 1,136 yards gave Gerhart a single-season rushing record at Stanford, while his 15 scores are second in school history for a single-season. He averaged 5.4 yards per carry and totaled eight 100-yard games, more than any other running back in the Pac-10 last season. Gerhart earned 2nd team all-conference honors in 2008.
