Will Decorah (6-4, 205, Waunakee High School)
Decorah enjoyed a standout prep career at Waunakee High School in both basketball and football. He was a three-year letterwinner on the court, helping the Warriors to the Badger Conference championship all three seasons. As a senior, the two-time All-Conference selection averaged 16 points per game. On the football field, Decorah was a member of two state championship teams playing quarterback and defensive end. During his senior season, Decorah broke the school single-season record with 2,166 passing yards and was named first-team All-Conference.

Decorah's father, Tim, played for Ryan at UW-Platteville and was a member of the Pioneers' first national championship team in 1991. His sister, Emily, played basketball at UW-Milwaukee from 2011-14 where she broke the Horizon League single-season record with 95 3-pointers during her junior season. Decorah is majoring in economics.
