Tyler Gaffney, the 2008 California high school football player of the year, capped his Cathedral Catholic career with a 329-yard performance in the 2008 CIF State Division II bowl game, one final personal hallmark to conclude a 14-0 season before embarking on a dual-sport concentration at Stanford University.
Featured as a wildcat back and amassing 156 carries behind two-time 1,000 yard rusher Stepfan Taylor, Gaffney ran for 815 yards and 12 touchdowns in his Cardinal football career before signing with the Pittsburgh Pirates in July and forgoing his senior seasons at Stanford Stadium and Sunken Diamond.
