Thank you for accepting a young kid from over 4,000 miles away in Kauai and making my
family and I feel at home for the past 3 years.
I appreciate Coach Chryst, Coach Leonard, and Coach April for the opportunity to be a Badger and represent the red and white. You helped turn me into a man on and off the field.
My teammates are truly brothers for life and it was an honor serving as a captain this season.
Badger Nation, you are the best fans in the country! From Camp Randall to every game on the road, you supported our team and brought the energy.
It has been a childhood dream of mine to play football at the highest level. After many
discussions with my family and coaches, I have decided to declare for the 2023 NFL Draft.
On Wisconsin. Mahalo.”
