Who's That Guy is an orientation tool for use in college football's vast landscape, and is filmed in front of a live studio audience.
Who Is He? Stanford running back Tyler Gaffney.
Where Is He From? San Diego, California (Cathedral Catholic).
Years Played: He played three years of college football at Stanford (2009-11) before taking a year off to play pro baseball; he returned to school and the Cardinal in 2013.
Follow the Bouncing Ball: A quick Gaffney timeline: He appeared in all but four games during his first three seasons with the Cardinal. His most productive season (2011) saw him record 449 rushing yards, 79 receiving yards, and eight total touchdowns. He was also a three-year starter for Stanford's baseball team during this time, and following the 2012 MLB draft, Gaffney announced he was forgoing his final year of eligibility in favor of going pro in something other than football.
Then, this April, after a year as a minor leaguer for the Pirates — a year in which he hit .297 and stole 11 bases, but watched Stanford win the Rose Bowl as a spectator — Gaffney announced his intent to return to school, finish his degree, and play one final season under David Shaw.
