After winning a state championship in football, several key players from the gridiron made their mark on the DeForest boys basketball program as well this winter.
With the cancellation of the high school boys basketball tournament before the sectional finals, only one Badger Conference team remained standing: the DeForest Norskies.

"You feel for the guys who weren't part of that football run on our team," said Weisbrod to 1070 The Game. "But even for the guys who made it, how special would that have been?"
