From one of the last players on the 105-man roster in 2012 summer camp to a team captain and on the doorstep of the NFL, running back Dare Ogunbowale exemplifies Wisconsin's walk-on legacy.

Ogunbowale is now in the Tampa area, practicing and competing in the East-West Shrine Game (Saturday at 2 p.m. CST, NFL Network). He spoke with B5Q about his training after the Badgers' 24-16 Cotton Bowl victory, being invited to the NFL Scouting Combine late next month and his Wisconsin career.

The former walk-on has impressed during practices this week, and his abilities on and off the field should intrigue NFL teams looking for a versatile running back.
