In order to show respect to the top 100 people who’ve made an impact at Wisconsin’s “Camp Randall Stadium,” its athletic department will honor an individual each day up until the Badgers’ home opener against Utah State on Sept. 1.
On Friday, the school recognized ex-Badgers RB John Clay, who ranks No. 10 in all-time rushing yards at Wisconsin (3,413). He also places eighth all-time in touchdowns (41) and sixth all-time in yards per attempt (5.43).
However, the Racine, Wis. native accomplished an even greater feat in high school. While playing for the Racine Park Panthers in the state championship game, Clay rushed for an 259 yards, which helped set a state record for yardage in a state championship game. That performance propelled his team to winning the 2005 Division I state title.
