Welcome to "AM AllBadgers!" Each morning, we will publish an article catching up with the news of the day prior, along with anything else we may have missed pertaining to the cardinal and white.
Wisconsin's athletic department announced via social media on Monday that it would begin "celebrating the newest class of Badgers joining the UW Athletic Hall of Fame." It started off by highlighting one of the program's well-known offensive lineman and Rose Bowl winner, Aaron Gibson.
UW's fact book calls out Gibson as a consensus All-American and a finalist for both the Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy during his senior season in 1998. He became a first-round selection in the 1999 NFL Draft, as he heard his name called to first play for the Detroit Lions. He also suited up for the Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys at the professional level.
