It’s not often that Cardinal fans get to watch the football team practice, so when the opportunity arose on Saturday, many of the gridiron faithful flocked to the Dan Elliott Practice Fields to catch a live scrimmage. After the practice, the student-athletes joined the community for the annual Fall Sports Open House at Stanford Stadium. Members of the women’s volleyball and field hockey teams and both men’s and women’s soccer teams were on hand to sign autographs and run drills and contests with young fans. Check out for insight on the scrimmage from Coach David Shaw and several players.
