Tuesdays with Barry 9-27-2016
Alumni, Friends and Family,
Congratulations Zeke and Connor
I am a day late with this Tuesdays with Barry, but wanted to wait until we could officially announce that Zeke Jordan and Connor Medbery will be representing the Badgers at the NWCA All-Star Classic. The event will be held on November 5 in Cleveland, OH. Zeke is scheduled to wrestle Daniel Lewis from Missouri and Conner has Ty Walz from Virginia Tech. Zeke and Connor will be in a battle as Lewis and Walz both placed 4th at the NCAA Championships last year.
Another former Badger to be Honored
This December former Badger Football player and wrestler, Tim Krumrie is being inducted to the College Football Hall of Fame. Tim still holds the career solo tackles record for the Badgers and spent 12 years in the NFL with the Cincinnati Bengals. Krumrie excelled at all levels but what is the biggest testament to his physical and mental toughness is he never missed a football game in his High School, College and NFL Career. Tim was an undefeated State Champion wrestler in 1979 for Mondovi High School and wrestled one year for the Badgers, placing 5th in the Big Ten Championships. If Tim would have chosen wrestling over football he likely would have been one of the Badgers all-time greats.
