7. FB Alec Ingold
Ingold is an absolute stud. The fullback position might be the most thankless in the game of football but Ingold is doing everything he can to still make an impact on the game.
Ingold is a touchdown machine. Through four games, he’s second on the team with three already. And he only has 11 carries. For his career, he’s already up to 14 touchdowns on only 88 carries. He’s finding the end zone every 6.2 touches. That’s insane.
After T.J. Edwards’ late interception against Iowa, the Badgers attempted to run out the clock by giving the ball to Ingold. He had other plans. On third down, he took a fullback sweep, not a dive, 33 yards to the house to put the game completely out of reach for the Hawkeyes. As I said, he’s a touchdown machine.
Earlier in the Iowa game, he also caught a pass that went for 33 yards that he almost took to the house. Who would have thought one of the best playmakers on the roster would be a fullback?
Wisconsin fans love Ingold and rightfully so. He sacrifices his body every time through the hole and whenever he touches the ball he’s a threat to score. That’s crazy to say about a fullback, but it’s apparently true.
He’s already had a season’s worth of big plays but you know more are to come. Opposing defenses can’t be happy about having to scout a fullback.
