Badger freshman earning their "stripes"

Posted:

The Badger football team has a tradition where the freshmen have to earn the motion "W" on their helmet. On Monday, coach Gary Andersen gave out the sticker to five freshmen. Three of those are wide receivers. George Rushing, Natrell Jamerson and Krenwick Sanders have all been opening eyes during camp at a position of need.

While they're competing for playing time, the three are also leaning on each other to succeed.

Sanders says, "We all live together so we're all pretty close and we all know wehave toa come out and compete to make each other better so we can be in position to make the team better. We all help each other even though we're competing against each other for the same spots."
