Winning its second straight WIAA division 1 title last season, the Warhawks are sending at least three players to division 1 schools in 2014, the most in the state, and have one of the best prospects in the Midwest for the class of 2016 in sophomore offensive tackle Ben Bredeson.
"Our season went great," Bredeson told BadgerNation. "We won state for the second year in a row, so it's always nice to end the year like that. I had a very good season. I thought my run blocking in particular improved a lot. I also thought my quickness and ability to get up to the linebackers and other levels of the defense got a lot better throughout the year.
"I really learned how to pull together with the guys and get refocused on our goal. After we lost to homestead a lot of us were shocked and that really brought us closer as a team and we rolled on from there."
The 6-4, 255-pound offensive lineman is receiving early interest from major Midwest powers, including home-state Wisconsin.
"My recruitment has been going pretty well," said Bredeson. "I'm hearing a lot from Michigan State, Iowa State, and Wisconsin. I went out to Madison a few weeks ago and watched a practice. I talked to coach Anderson and the offensive line coach and they both said that they have their eyes on me and they're excited to see my future.
"I didn't know what to expect before I went to visit Wisconsin with the new staff. Once I got there I could tell that everybody was very close with one another and everybody cared about each other. That means a lot to me. I expected most of the talk to be about football, but there was very limited talk about that. They wanted to get to know me and talk about my family and personal things, which I thought was pretty cool."
Bredeson plans on going to Iowa State sometime this spring as well as Michigan State for a basketball game.
