Story By Joe Dufek


EAGLE RIVER - After months of talk... the wait is finally over.

Today was National Signing Day for Football and several other sports....

One of the biggest signings today, Northland Pines senior running back and linebacker Austin Ramesh officially signed with Wisconsin.

He's expected to be a linebacker with the Badgers.

Today with his family, coaches, teammates on hand, Austin signed with Wisconsin.


After Gary Anderson took over the Badgers program, he's glad to put all of the stress behind him. Playing for the Badgers is something he's wanted to do growing up in Eagle River.

Wisconsin also signed two other area athletes for the football team. Wisconsin Rapids senior offensive lineman Hayden Biegel joins his brother Vince. Also Merrill's Ben Hemer has committed to the Badgers as well as a prefered walk-on. He's the younger brother of Ethan Hemer, a starting defensive lineman. Ben is also expected to compete on the offensive line.

Other signings today include Rhinelander sending a trio of Hodags off. Ben Franson will play soccer for Viterbo, as will Claire Tracy at North Carolina - Pembroke. Meanwhile, Cody Knapp is headed to Concordia in the Twin Cities to play division two football.

And Lakeland's Delaney FitzPatrick has verbally committed to running cross country for Yale University. FitzPatrick finished seventh at the WIAA State Girls Cross Country Division 2 Race last fall.
