"Walk-On This Way:" The most athletic walk-ons of all-time at UW-Madison

Fresh off the Badgers Big Ten West title, the look of happiness couldn't be wiped off the face of Dare Ogunbowale.
 
The Badgers senior captain is another in the on-going legacy of the Wisconsin Football walk-on tradition.  And now a book highlights this key to the Badgers program.
Written by former walk-on tight end Joel Nellis and author Jake Kocorowski, Walk-On This Way has the stories of J.J. Watt, Jim Leonhard, Jared Abbrederis, Chris Maragos, Joe Panos and so many other walk-ons that brought the glory back to the Badgers.
