VIDEO: Dare Ogunbowale is Wisconsin RB by day, piano-playing master by night
I always thought that Wisconsin running backs were just big, physical guys built to run with a head of steam behind the Badgers’ dominant offensive line.
Dare Ogunbowale proved that there’s much more to Badger backs than what you see on Saturday.
At the annual Buckinghams Awards Show in Madison, the Wisconsin tailback brought the fire on the piano:
You’ll want to see how @DGO23_ (& friends) opened the #Buckinghams. Dueling pianos, a harmonica & a special guest. https://t.co/qFlENDEnfe

Not to be outdone, the host for the evening’s festivities was fellow Badger back Corey Clement. He also showed off his musical talents:

Former Badger quarterback Joel Stave is also a gifted piano player. The music courses offered at Wisconsin must be top of the line.
It’s nice to see that Badger football players could have some artistic career options if the NFL doesn’t come calling. At the very least, they can impress at cocktail parties.
