Is the West as good on defense as advertised?
"Absolutely," said Biegel. "We got great coaches on both sides of the ball, obviously, and I really like my position coach. We're just having fun out here - making plays - and enjoying each other's company."
Which teammates have impressed Biegel?
"You know what? It's hard to pick out one guy individually, but these guys are all out here for a reason, obviously, and I'm impressed with all the guys," he said.
"They're all playing their hearts out; it's nice to have a big defensive line playing in front of me and there's some great, talented individuals playing behind me (in the secondary) as well."
Biegel will square off against a couple of future teammates on Saturday.
"I'm looking forward to facing Dan Voltz and Kyle Dodson," he said. "We're all committed to the University of Wisconsin. I'm looking forward to facing off with those two guys. It's good competition and I have a lot of respect for for Dan Voltz and Kyle Dotson.
"I'm excited to represent the state of Wisconsin, my hometown of Wisconsin Rapids, and the University of Wisconsin."
