Stanford's Garnett a preseason All-American in football


Stanford senior offensive guard Joshua Garnett has been named to the USA Today preseason All-America football team for 2015, it was announced Tuesday.

Garnett, a 6-5, 321-pounder from Puyallup, Wash., was one of 11 selections to the first- team offense. Previously, he was picked to the Rotary Lombardi Award watch list, the Outland Trophy watch list, the preseason All-America first team, the CBS Sports preseason All-America second team, and All-Pac-12 preseason first team.

In 2014, Garnett made 13 starts at left guard and helped the Cardinal offensive line rank 18th nationally in tackles for loss allowed (4.62/game) and 42nd in sacks allowed (1.77/game).

As a sophomore in 2013, Garnett played in 14 games and sparked a punishing ground game that ranked second nationally in rushing (207.4 yards/game), 11th in sacks allowed (1.14/game) and seventh in tackles for loss allowed (4.14 game).

Garnett was one of three freshmen to play on the offensive line in 2012, appearing in all 14 games.

A human biology major, Garnett was a five-star recruit by Scout and three-time all-state selection.

He'll be in the starting lineup Saturday when Stanford opens its season at Northwestern at 9 a.m. (ESPN)
