Fiesta Bowl game message to Jordan Williamson and the Stanford Team
by Michael Dotterer | on January 3, 2012
I first want to congratulate you on an outstanding football season! You’ve been to two BCS Bowl games the past two years, won one and barely lost last night. To put things in perspective, I too played football at Stanford (1979-1982). My freshman year I went the wrong way on the last play of the Big game which many believe cost us a victory. We did not go to a Bowl game that year. The next season with John Elway as our Quarterback, we again lost the Big Game and did not get invited to a Bowl game. My junior year we finally beat CAL but again did not get invited to a bowl game. Then my senior year (1982) our Band came on the field for the famous ‘PLAY’ game. Again, we did not get invited to a bowl game and I graduated from Stanford that spring in 1983.
Simply put Jordan, I’d give every Touchdown I scored (23) and gladly never play one down for all four years to have the ring that you won last year with your Orange Bowl victory!
I know you’ll come back next year stronger than ever!
Go Cardinal Go!!!
Your fan, Mike Dotterer ’83
