In the Trenches – NFL

I grew up (and live in) Wisconsin, so you could say I’m a lifelong Badger fan by geography alone.  Despite any allegiances to the University of Wisconsin, I enjoy a well-told story.  That’s why I’m thrilled to lend my voice to the NFL web series In the Trenches, featuring two rival Big Ten prospects as they chase their dreams.

Even if you’re just a casual football fan, the series shows what NFL hopefuls go through to make it into the combine and secure a place in the draft.  What impact does this leap to pro have on an athlete’s family?  How do you prepare for the draft?

They may not have been Badgers, but I hope these guys make it!

Follow the series as Pat Elflein (Ohio State, center) & Kyle Kalis (Michigan, guard) proceed on their 2017 NFL draft journey.
