he's gained for his home state school. perhaps that's why he appreciates every moment of his 5 years in madison. 18:34:55 it's been awesome. you come in here not knowing really how i got on the field, being one of the last guys accepted in the fall camp. then kind of earning my way on t then the best part of my whole journey is to be voted by my teammates to be a captain. there's not a lot than means more to me than the guys on this team 18:35:18 dare started as a defensive back before being switched to offense. his willingness to play any role for the good of the team isn't lost on 18:10:55 i love dare. and he means a ton to this team. certainly on the field. but off the field, he's a guy that everyone knows in the locker room they can go to. that dare's got their back the number of things that he does that aren't on a stat sheet, and what he brings to this team. it's huge.
