Championship Mentality

Clinching the D-IV crown to end his Ohio prep high school football career, Wisconsin commit Chris Borland sets his sights on Madison and will bring some impressive senior season stats with him.

MADISON - All-around athlete Chris Borland recently helped the Kettering Alter football team take the D-IV state championship in Ohio, beating Steubenville 21-6 at the end of November. After helping hoist the state championship trophy, Borland shifted his focus and set his sights on next year when he becomes a Badger.

His statistics his senior year at Alter were influential in getting his team all the way to the trophy. Borland was a multiple position player for his squad due to his skills being equal in every facet of the game.

Borland stats included 1,230 yards on the ground with 19 touchdowns, 440 yards receiving with 6 touchdowns. He rushed for an average of 8.7 yards per carry. On the defensive side he accumulated 67 tackles for his senior season.

Borland plans on joining the Badgers officially once he receives his diploma in the spring. In the mean time Borland has been keeping himself in top form and developing his game mentally so that he will be ready to play at the next level.

"I've been working on my defensive fundamentals and getting that aspect prepared for the next level." said Borland.

Borland is being categorized as an all-around athlete due to his attributes and how he will be able to play both sides of the ball. He has talked to the coaching staff but they haven't given an indication of what position they will play him at.

"They haven't specific about where I play since I'm being recruited as an athlete. They can use me wherever they need me." said Borland.

Borland's expectations for the Badgers are simple. Borland is looking to make the Badgers the best they can be and he wants the program to bring the best out of him.

"I'm just excited I expect to be around a lot of good guys and be on a winning football team." said Borland.

Borland thinks they are a solid winning team and who he's talked with so far he likes and hopes that his tenure as a Badger will be a personal and team success.
