With no current player on the Oregon roster wearing #67, we decided to go with a blast from the past with Josh Sanford. Sanford is the last player to don the #67 jersey for the Ducks not currently on the roster.
Before joining the Ducks, Sanford was a stud athlete from Port Angeles High School in California where he lettered in football, baseball and track. Sanford was a sensational track star with impressive marks in the shot put (47’9), discus (146), hammer throw (152) and javelin (149). He was also a USA Weightlifting champion in Washington for 2006, his junior year. On the football field he earned first-team all-league honors at left tackle.
After graduating from high school he enrolled at the College of the Siskiyous (Weed, California) where he was a two-time all-Conference selection and a first-team Academic All-American. He played two seasons with the Eagles then chose to join the Ducks as a walk-on.
In 2009, Sanford joined the Ducks in September and was a member of the scout team during his redshirt season.
In 2010, Sanford played in two games (Portland State and UCLA) in his first season with the Ducks as an active member. He showed his athleticism in winter workouts when he posted the fastest 10-yard dash (1.91) of any Oregon offensive lineman.
In 2011, Sanford appeared in five games as a senior and played a career-high 16 plays against Oregon State in the Civil War. He defended his title as strongest lineman in the clean lift, and even increased his max from 319 to 341 lbs.
Following his career with the Ducks, Sanford is now a proud husband, father and a member of the Springfield Police Department as a detention officer.
