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.
âWe want to do as well as we can in these games, but we also want to evaluate the talent we have out here,â said Hornetsâ coach Doug Frye. âWe want to give everyone out here playing time, so we can see what they can do to help us in the regular season.â
The Xtreme went up 24-0 at halftime due to the performance of quarterback Anthony Wynn, who had two touchdown passes.
