Camarillo Breaks One

Former Stanford wide receiver and current 5th-year NFL pro Greg Camarillo helped make up for the Minnesota Vikings’ awful offensive performance (164 yards and 3 points) in last night’s game against the New York Giants by breaking off a near-touchdown on a punt return. The Redwood City native, who is “not known for his speed,” bobbed and weaved through the Big Blue punt coverage team before finally stepping out of bounds after a 52-yard return. Perhaps most memorably, Camarillo gets hit around the 40 yard line, spins, appears to be on the verge of going down, and recovers to gain significant yardage.

The game, which was slotted to be a home game for the Vikings, took place in Detroit following the now-infamous collapse of the Metrodome’s roof.

As annoying as Brett Favre is, the Vikings are the (unofficial) NFL team of choice for Stanford football, as 2010 Stanford graduate and 2009 Heisman runner-up Toby Gerhart also plays for Minnesota.
