Get To Know Your Orange Man - #42 - DB Joe Stanard

Don't walk on by without learning about one of our newest walk-ons...

Name: Joe Stanard

Position: Defensive Back

Year: Freshman

Height: 5'9"

Weight: 179

Hometown: Baldwinsville, NY

High School: C.W. Baker

2012 Stats: Stanard recorded 85 tackles, recovered two fumbles and snagged two interceptions for the 8-2 Baker Bees last year.

2013 Projections: Stanard is a freshman walk-on, so...

How'd He Get Here?: We almost lined up against Stanard this season. He had an offer from Wagner, as well as Jacksonville, and also received interest from D-III powerhouse Mt. Union. Academics helped away him to consider Syracuse instead.

What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Nothing.

Money Quote: "I don't really want to play if I know I'm not getting any playing time. I want to play football. It's something I love. I wouldn't stop playing. I don't know what I would do."

Tweets of Wonder: Joey's ahead of the game...

What Does Shafer Think: Shafer loves hard-nosed people from the hard-nosed area of hard-nosed Syracuse. And Stanard sounds hard-nosed. So...I'm guessing he likes him.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Stanard isn't the only Baker Bee who walked on at SU. OL Eric Anthony has joined him.
