Wide receiver Alex Erickson has provided another ringing endorsement for the Wisconsin football team’s walk-on program.
The former walk-on from Darlington was named a first-team all-Big Ten pick by the media and a second-team pick by the coaches.
Erickson leads the Badgers in receptions (72) and receiving yards (924).
Erickson is third in the Big Ten in receiving yards per game (77.0) and needs 76 more yards in Wisconsin’s upcoming bowl game to become the fourth player in school history with a 1,000-yard receiving season.
Redshirt senior offensive tackle Tyler Marz was named a second-team pick by the media and a third-team pick by the coaches.
Redshirt sophomore tight end Troy Fumagalli was a consensus honorable mention pick and redshirt freshman Michael Deiter was named honorable mention by the media.
