Future K-State lineman worked hard just to be noticed

College football coaches rarely visit Wiggins, Colo. The small town in the northeast quadrant of the Centennial State is home to roughly 900 people and one high school. Division I athletes hardly ever come out of such an out-of-the-way place. Even when a big and talented offensive lineman such as Dalton Risner comes along, it is difficult to get noticed.
