The retired Atlanta Falcons player, who holds a special place in my heart (and here on the site) will be inducted into the Stanford Hall of Fame tonight (November 11, 2011)…
One of the greatest offensive linemen in school history, Bob Whitfield earned first team All-America honors in 1990 and ’91 before leaving Stanford after his junior season to enter the NFL Draft. Selected with the eighth pick overall by the Atlanta Falcons, Whitfield enjoyed a 15-year NFL career with the Atlanta Falcons (1992-2003), Jacksonville Jaguars (2004) and New York Giants (2005-06).
Bob splits his time between his homes in Los Angeles and Atlanta and is involved with Patchwerks, Inc., an independent entertainment company he founded in 1993 while playing for the Atlanta Falcons. He also “lives vicariously” through his four children, LaNiece, Kodi, Kairo and Kaleigh.
In this installment of GoStanford.com’s feature series spotlighting Stanford’s 2011 Athletic Hall of Fame inductees, Bob talks about his time at Stanford, blocking for Tommy Vardell, memories of Dennis Green and how his selection to the Hall of Fame has prompted him to complete some unfinished business on The Farm.?
