Wisconsin QB Alex Hornibrook shows off singing chops at 2018 Buckinghams

Get him on tour with Joel Stave, pronto!

Alex Hornibrook just completed his fourth spring football camp at Wisconsin in anticipation of a potentially huge fall for the Badgers’ offense. On Tuesday night, he showed off another skill set in front of a live audience.

Guitar in hand, Hornibrook performed the Zac Brown Band’s “Chicken Fried” at the 2018 Buckinghams at the Overture Center in downtown Madison.

Billed as the “Student-Athlete Showcase of Excellence,” the event showcases Wisconsin’s student-athletes performing their various talents while also intertwining interviews and honoring achievements.

Watching Hornibrook’s rendition, I definitely have to say I’m impressed by his abilities, as I’m a fan of the song.

The band’s Twitter account chimed in on Wednesday morning, apparently approving the performance.

But wait, a Wisconsin quarterback performing some musical medleys at the Buckinghams? Why does that sound so familiar?

That’s because Joel Stave (AKA the all-time winningest quarterback in UW history) did so a couple of times in the past six years, as seen below.

Other Badger football standouts who have performed include running backs Dare Ogunbowale and Corey Clement.

Check out the full video of the 2018 Buckinghams below.
