The profits weren’t going to go toward a video game or sports equipment. Their focus was on the bigger picture. Their revenue was going to be given to the struggling city of Detroit.
The boys’ endeavor...
The Big Ten has been great at producing offensive linemen prospects for he NFL lately. The Wisconsin Badgers are a factory, but there’s also been a bunch in the few year coming out from the Illinois Fighting Illini, Ohio State Buckeyes and Michigan Wolverines.
