As a Lodi Flame, star running back Jordan Perkins frequently looks like a blurry red line speeding down the field.

Now he's planning on keeping the same look, but just in more of a Cardinal red.

    Congrats to Jordan on an amazing accomplishment. Beyond football, a degree from Stanford will open doors for him for the rest of his life. Having coached against Jordan for the past two years, I can tell you that he has earned this scholarship. Congrats to his parents, too.

    While I wish this kid all the luck in the world I hope it doesn't make him a target.Personally, I know players who I played with both in HS and College who would've been on a mission to see to it that he never made it to Stanford. Either out of jealousy or spite they would've taken a shot at his knees. I hope that doesn't happen but the possibility is there.

    Lodibill: it's the times we live in. A 13 year old kid just verbally committed to USC not too long ago. If your good, colleges will be willing to take that chance. Good job Jordan! The sky's the limit.

    Eh... since when do HS Juniors get full rides? Where have I been? When I was in HS (79-82) no one rec. offers until after the Football Season of their Senior year.What if the kid breaks his leg during his Senior year, or is in a horrible accident and is god forbid paralized? Stanford going to keep it's commitment?

    WOW! What an accomplishment! Congratulations to you Jordan and your family. Football scholarships to a big D1 college doesn't happen too much around here. Keep focused and represent Lodi proudly.

    Congratulations! By the way if you do drugs, don't keep them in your wallet. :)

    Awesome choice Jordan. Having such a mature grip on priorities is testimony for your future possibilities. You make your community proud.

    What great news for local athletes to see. Not only is this kid extremely talented, but it shows hard work in the classroom and in the weightroom pay off!!
