Former North Carolina State quarterback Russell Wilson is headed to Wisconsin, potentially solving one of the biggest trouble spots standing between the Badgers and a Big Ten title.
Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema said Monday that Wilson will compete for the Badgersâ€™ starting job in the fall. The two-sport star most recently played in the Colorado Rockiesâ€™ minor league system but apparently is ready to hang up his baseball spikes.
The Catawba County Hornets football team completed the 2011 preseason Saturday against the Georgia Xtreme.
â€śWe want to do as well as we can in these games, but we also want to evaluate the talent we have out here,â€ť said Hornetsâ€™ coach Doug Frye. â€śWe want to give everyone out here playing time, so we can see what they can do to help us in the regular season.â€ť
The Xtreme went up 24-0 at halftime due to the performance of quarterback Anthony Wynn, who had two touchdown passes.
