WKOW caught up with Wisconsin’s all-time leading rusher, Ron Dayne, to chat about Jonathan Taylor – the running back working to break his records – and dropping his son, Javian, off at Boston College.
Dayne stopped by an event at Pick n’ Save in Stoughton on Friday. In addition to cheering on his Wisconsin Badgers, the former Heisman winner will also be keeping an eye on Boston College the next few years. Dayne dropped Javian off at the college last weekend and admits he was a bit misty-eyed.
"I thought it would be easy, but it was a little tough," said Dayne of sending his son to school. "But, he seems like he’s handling it, for this first week so far. He’s around a lot of great guys – his teammates and great coaches – so it seems like it’s a great fit for him.
Dayne also discussed current Badger running back Jonathan Taylor – a Heisman favorite – heading into the fall.
"[Taylor being a favorite for the Heisman] is just great," said Dayne. "Just to have a guy from our team just be mentioned and get the opportunity to go out, show, improve and impress people. I think he got a little bit of everything. He’s just got to get better and key on, work on things he think he needs to work on like fumbling. I think he’s working on that. I think it should be a great season for them."
Wisconsin kicks off the season on Friday, August 31st, against Western Kentucky at Camp Randall.
