Abbrederis' Dream Comes True with Packers

By Justin Garcia. CREATED May 16, 2014

Wautoma native Jared Abbrederis began his career in Madison as a walk-on spread-option quarterback.  When Abbrederis finished his collegiate career five years later, he left Madison tied for the Badgers all-time receptions mark.

Now, its onto the NFL for Abbrederis and once again his football will be played in Wisconsin after the Packers selected him in the fifth round of the NFL draft.

Abbrederis spoke with Greg Matzek on Sports Central about staying in the state of Wisconsin as he moves on to the highest level of football.
