Post-RB Locker Room Lowdown: OLB Trent Murphy

In Stanford's celebratory post-game locker room, we grabbed a few minutes with redshirt junior outside linebacker Trent Murphy, one of the more impressive player development stories of the 2013 season - and not only because he was selected aptly as the "honorary carver" at this year's Lawry's Beef Bowl! One of the hard-working players whom we were most happy to see enjoy a Pasadena pay-off!

Post-Rose Bowl Locker Room Lowdown: OLB Trent Murphy

In Stanford's celebratory post-game locker room, we grabbed a few minutes with redshirt junior outside linebacker Trent Murphy, one of the more impressive player development stories of the 2013 season - and not only because he was selected as the "honorary carver" at this year's Lawry's Beef Bowl! The Bootleg had observed that Trent was manhandling our own offensive line throughout the 2012 Spring game and had expected him to have a huge year, but he went out and earned third-team AP All-American honors, book-ending with All-American senior Chase Thomas to form the most formidible outside linebacking duo in all of college football - an embarassment of riches when you consider that Stanford's remarkable defense sports additional studs like Shayne Skov and A.J. Tarpley on the inside and outstanding depth with Jerek Lancaster, Alex Debniak, James Vaughters, etc. At this time, we expect Trent to return for one more big year, but if we were a professional football franchise, we would sure like having this talented and likeable guy on our squad.
