Pat Kroll ‘92 calls this a day he’ll always remember.
He and daughter Avery, 11 (“a proud, red-wearing child among a sea of black and gold”) traveled from Iowa to watch the Wisconsin football team take on Purdue at Camp Randall this fall.
Avery’s goal is to play for the Badger volleyball team some day, and Pat says it was her idea to flash the “W” in front of Bascom Hill, where they wound up after walking around campus and along State Street.
"At lunch, I educated her on some of the language and behavior she would see before and during the Purdue game,” he says. “The game was fantastic, and ol’ dad almost got teary-eyed watching his oldest daughter ‘Jump Around.’”
