Inside Stanford's new football facility
Stanford has begun the process of moving in to its new $21 million football facility. Prior to the facility's official opening, Stanford granted the media a tour of its new digs, which were funded by donations from a number of donors. Former Cardinal stars John Lynch, Tommy Vardell, Jim Plunkett, Andrew Luck and John Elway each contributed to the project.
Visitors to the facility are greeted by a large Stanford logo.

The Cardinal's new locker room contains 110 individual player lockers.
The lockers are separated by position group.
