In NFL, Badgers help Badgers

Travis Frederick serves as mentor for rookie Beau Allen

MADISON, Wis. (WKBT) - This fall, there could be as many as 38 former Badgers playing in the NFL. As many as nine of them called Camp Randall home as recently as last fall.

Wisconsin rookies have a mentor in Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Travis Frederick, who enters his second NFL season. The Badgers Legends golf outing was far from the first time he's spoken to them, many of whom are his former teammates.

"I reached out to a couple of those guys during the process and said if you have any questions, let me know. There's a lot of uncertainty going in," Frederick said. "There are a lot of things you just don't know and nobody can really explain it until they've been through it."

"That's the great thing about the guys at Wisconsin," said Philadelphia Eagles nose guard Beau Allen. "We're good guys. We want to help each other out. It's a good group of people. Everyone from Wisconsin who has been through it, they want to help support us.

But he's a Cowboy now and I'm an Eagle."
