    Is Will Brandin-the son of Erik Brandin-grad of Paly-class of '64? Erik was such a great football player at Paly-and Erik is now deceased, such a loss!!!!!!

    And Erik Brandin's father, Alf Brandin, was a member of Stanford football's famous Vow Boys (they vowed to never lose to USC) of 1932-35.

    In regards to the Erik Brandin comment:

    Erik is Will Brandin's uncle.....was. He has passed away. Will's grandfather is Alf Brandin, one of the Vow Boys who played in the Rose Bowl for Stanford. Will's father, Mark, is a Gunn graduate (1972) and played rubgy at Stanford.....hope this helps.
