Brett Boettcher, a young Wisconsin fan who was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, led the Badgers onto the field for the team’s annual spring game Saturday afternoon at Camp Randall Stadium.

Boettcher, a Menomoni, Wisconsin, native, was diagnosed with DMD when he was five years old, and he’s developed a friendship with Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst.

Prediction: Boettcher won’t forget this day.

Well done, Wisconsin.
