Wisconsin’s Sam Dekker showcases quarterback ability on Twitter for Aaron Rodgers

2 Comments

Wisconsin’s run to a second consecutive Final Four means they’ve attracted plenty of new fans, including Green Bay Packers All-Pro quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers and girlfriend Olivia Munn have been spotted at Badger NCAA Tournament games the last few weeks and Rodgers has developed a friendship with Wisconsin junior wing Sam Dekker.

The communication between the two has even escalated to Twitter, where Rodgers asked Dekker to showcase his quarterback skills for the world to see.

Dekker was happy to show off his arm in some passing drills in his response:

This isn’t the first time Rodgers has been active around college hoops. Last season, the two-time NFL MVP took an interest in Kansas senior Tarik Black, as he thought Black might be able to make it to pro football as a tight end.

Black didn’t make the transition into football though, as he’s playing on the Los Angeles Lakers this season.

It’ll be interesting to see how involved Rodgers gets during the Final Four, as Wisconsin has the huge Final Four rematch with Kentucky.
