2007: Havili, who showed great promise at fullback in 2006 before getting hurt, started all of his 2007 redshirt freshman season and had a good showing. Overall in 2007 while starting all 13 games, he gained 134 yards on 21 carries (6.4 avg.) with 2 TDs and caught 34 passes for 248 yards (7.3 avg.) with 5 TDs.

2006: Havili was off to a fast start as a freshman fullback in 2006, his first year at USC, but he broke his left leg at Arizona and was sidelined the rest of the year, allowing him to redshirt because of the early-season injury. He appeared in the first 3 games (on special teams against Nebraska and Arkansas, then starting at fullback at Arizona before getting hurt). Overall in 2006, he had 4 catches for 24 yards (6.0 avg.), all at Arizona. He and tailback Emmanuel Moody became the first USC true freshmen fullback/tailback combo to start a game together when they did so at Arizona.

As a junior in 2004, he made All-State first team and All-Region as he rushed for 1,900 yards on 224 carries (8.5 avg.) with 23 TDs. Current Trojan John Martinez also prepped at Cottonwood.
PERSONAL: He's a public policy, management and planning major at USC.
STANLEY HAVILI ON: His size and speed: "I think there is an advantage to not being the biggest fullback out there with my speed. Speed is the name of the game and if you can play this game fast but aren't the biggest guy out there, it will help you move around. I like being smaller and more agile."
WHAT OTHERS SAY: USC head coach Lane Kiffin: "He's a very unique fullback who can catch the ball, run, block and even play on the outside in formations. He has continued to expand his role. He's fun to have as you get to game planning. And I enjoy watching him in his leadership role."
Former USC quarterback John David Booty: "He adds a whole other dimension to the offense."
