Congratulations to Garfield Baseball alum, Isaiah Stanback, on winning a title with the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants! During his high school days, Stanback was the star quarterback on the football team, a forward on a powerhouse basketball team, ran track, and played outfield for the baseball team. He had the opportunity to pursue professional baseball having worked out for Major League organizations and even been drafted in 2006, but declined the offer. Instead, he accepted a football scholarship to play for the Huskies as a quarterback and wide receiver, also running sprints for the track team during his collegiate career. Since graduating from the University of Washington, he has had stints with several NFL franchises as a wide receiver and kick returner, with the highlight (so far) of being a member of the newly-crowned world champs. He remains a friendly face in the community and one of the greatest all-around athletes in Garfield history.
