The brave team from Stanford, setting foot in Seawolf territory

Faris Mohiuddin and Michael Baer
So here's what the competition looks like:

Faris Mohiuddin - A northern California native, Faris studied Political Science and Economics as an undergraduate at Stanford.After working at Bain & Company, the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation and Philanthropedia (a non-profit startup), Farid returnd to Stanford and will soon complete his second year of graduate studies in Business and Law. During his admittedly far-too-long speech and debate career Faris won state and national championships and served as president of the Stanford Debate Society.

Michael Baer - A first-year law student at Stanford, Michael is thoroughly enjoying being back in California. His first stint there ended in in 2008, when he graduated from Stanford with a degree in Political Science and a focus in international Security Studies. After college, he returned home to the Washington D.C. area, where he worked for several political campaigns in Virginia and then as a writer for a U.S. Senator Evan Bayh. Michael was a national champion in parliamentary debate in college and has worked with high school and university debaters in eight countries around the world.

Hmmm. Both graduated from Stanford. And both went back to grad school there. Must be nice!

Next up, the Seawolves!
