Bo Ryan, Donald Driver get their Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame plaques

Two Wisconsin athletic icons have taken their rightful places in the state's hall of fame.

Both former Badgers coach Bo Ryan and Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver both had their plaques installed outside the UWM Panther Arena Tuesday.

The Hall of Fame commemorates dozens of Wisconsin athletes with plaques detailing their accomplishments at the outdoor exhibit on 4th St. between State and Kilbourn.

Ryan served as the head coach for 3 UW schools throughout his prolific career: UW-Platteville, UW-Milwaukee, and UW-Madison. He won four Division III NCAA titles with Platteville, and brought the Badgers to back-to-back Final Fours in 2014-2015.

Driver was drafted by the Packers in the last round of the 1999 draft, and went on to set the team's record for both receptions and receiving yards. His personality, million dollar smile, and charitable efforts made him one of the most popular Packers not named Brett Favre.
