Biegel: Wisconsin cranberry farmer to NFL draft
If you’re a Wisconsin Badger fan and keeping up with the 2017 NFL Draft, you are probably anxiously awaiting for two-time all-conference pick Vince Biegel to take the stage. Football runs in Biegel’s blood. His father, Rocky, played linebacker at BYU while his uncle T.D. was a fullback for the Cougars. Vince’s grandfather, Ken, played Division III ball and was a Wisconsin and national high school hall of fame coach.
But many people might not realize Biegel’s second passion is cranberry farming. Check out this fifth generation farmer’s journey from the cranberry marshes of Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin to the 2017 NFL Draft.
