Tiger ('96) honored by Stanford at the Big Game

The following story comes from the Tiger Woods website - the photo below is from Getty Images, also on the official Tiger Woods website:

STANFORD, Calif. -- Tiger Woods was officially inducted into the Stanford Athletics Hall of Fame on Friday night during a small dinner on campus. Woods was a two-time first-team All-American and NCAA Individual Champion in 1996.
Accompanied by his wife, Elin, children Sam and Charlie, and mother Kultida, he was serenaded by the Stanford Band beforehand, Woods conducting the final song "All Right Now" from the steps of the Cantor Arts Center.

Following a video tribute, his mother and former Cardinal teammates Jerry Chang and Notah Begay III gave heartfelt testimonials.

On Saturday, Woods served as honorary captain for Stanford's football game against archrival California. He gave a short but rousing pre-game speech in the locker room before the game and flipped the coin at midfield, Stanford winning the toss. But after jumping out to a 14-0 lead, the Cardinal lost, 34-28.

Woods was also recognized for his election into the Hall of Fame at halftime, where he was presented with a plaque by Stanford Athletic Director Bob Bowlsby.
