Senior Sit Down: Sam Schwartzstein talks about Big Game and his experience on the Farm.

A redshirt senior in his final season on the Farm, center Sam Schwartzstein is known as one of Stanford’s most vocal leaders on and off the field. A preseason candidate for the Rimington Trophy as the nation’s top collegiate center, Schwartzstein came into his own last year as a first-year starter when the Cardinal offensive line helped Andrew Luck lead the Pac-12 in passing efficiency and completion percentage along with school records for single-season touchdown passes. Schwartzstein sat with The Daily to use his unique perspective as one of five fifth-year seniors on the roster to talk all things Big Game and Stanford football.
