'Shayne's Still Shayne'
According to Stanford's Football Notebook, Shayne Skov '09 who has been out since September 17, 2011 with a knee injury sustained against Arizona is jumping out of his skin to get back on the field. Quarterback Josh Nunes, claimed he knew Skov was ready to go when, "In fall camp, it was a short yardage drill, and he leaped over the line to get at me." Shayne is a highly competitive guy who is always looking to make the play, and loves football itself. The road to recovery was not easy, "You're constantly focused on short term goals when its a long term picture" stated Skov. Last time Shayne really expressed his toughness was in the 2011 Orange Bowl, making 17 tackles.
Not being able to work on his lower body for most of the time injured, he was able to really focus on his diet, flexability, body composition and upper body strength. Shayne will be willing to perform this season at a chiseled 243 pounds, compared to a 253 pound frame pre-injury.
