Jordan Richards, a senior strong safety for the Sanford Cardinals, returns after earning honorable mention All-Pac-12 accolades in 2013. Richards is known for packing a wallop in the secondary and will support the run for a Stanford defensive front seven that has seen key losses the last two seasons. A year ago he recorded nearly 70 tackles and had three picks to go along with a trio of pass breakups.
Attended high school in Folsom, Calif., where he was a standout receiver and defensive back while earning three letters. Rushed for 563 yards and six touchdowns, caught 69 passes for 1,068 yards and 11 scores, and made 61 tackles and two picks, as a senior. Richards was an All-Northern California first-team selection after his final season in 2010.
Richards played in all 13 games of his true freshman season in 2011, earning three starts and recording 31 tackles. In 2012, he earned All-Pac-12 honorable mention after recording a team-high 15 passes defensed and snagging three interceptions. In 2013, Richards earned another honorable mention selection after recording 69 tackles, three interceptions and three pass breakups as a junior.
