One rising performer from this past season was Amherst (WI) junior defensive end Tyler Biadasz. Programs had already been keeping tabs on him during his junior season, but steady progress in his game on the football field has carried over to his recruitment.
“My recruitment is going good,” Biadasz told BadgerNation. “Iowa and Western Michigan invited me to their junior day, and I just went to Minnesota’s junior day. Western Illinois, Bowling Green and Iowa came to my school and Purdue sent me some mail.”
One place that the 6-3, 270-pound defensive end is hoping to hear from in the coming months is Wisconsin, which Biadasz hopes to get the chance to play at someday.
“I am very interested in Wisconsin, and that’s my goal to get there,” said Biadasz. “I’m keeping my options open, but I would love to go there if I get the opportunity. All my life I have been a Badger fan. I like their practice facilities, field and the location. I like the school a lot. It also has what I want to go to school for, which is teaching. I want to go in elementary and special education K-8 and a high school history minor.”
Biadasz help lead his team to a runner-up finish in the Division 5 state championship game. Despite falling short of accomplishing the ultimate goal, he saw his game drastically improve from the beginning to the end of the season.
"I had 77 tackles, four forced fumbles and six sacks this season,” said Biadasz. “I still need to work on probably being quick and quicker with my pass rush. I always can improve on chasing the ball back side. I live on back side tackles. I did pretty good this season though and my solo tackling, tackling in space, shedding blocks and getting off the ball all improved.”
