Stanford's O-line trying to live up to reputation

The Associated Press

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) Stanford's offensive line was in the middle of a meeting during spring practices earlier this year when a few large visitors walked into the room.

Current NFL linemen Jonathan Martin and David Yankey and former team captain Sam Schwartzstein popped in with a couple of other past players for a surprise history lesson. They educated the new crop of Cardinal linemen about the responsibility they were inheriting and issued a challenge to improve upon what had been established.

With four new starters next to returning left tackle Andrus Peat, the unit is in the early stages of another reconstruction. It will face its first major test Saturday when the 13th-ranked Cardinal (1-0) host Leonard Williams and No. 14 Southern California (1-0) in a much-anticipated Pac-12 tilt.
