More than 12,500 athletes have earned a letter for competing for the University of Wisconsin's sports teams.
Add in hundreds of coaches and administrators to get a fuller picture of the depth of the population around Camp Randall Stadium, the UW Field House, Kohl Center and other athletic venues on and off campus in Madison.
We're ready to introduce you to the best of the best, the Badgers Legends.
It's a feature of BadgerExtra where we bring you up close with the individuals who have excelled with the Badgers. You'll find video interviews, photo galleries, interactive details on the Legends' UW careers and a recollection of their top moments with the program.
You might know some of the big parts of their UW stories, but we're going to go in depth to find new elements and the pieces that might have been lost to time.
