01/20/14 - 2014 SENIOR BOWL, WIDE RECEIVER: Arrow pointing up: Jared Abbrederis, Wisconsin...A former walk-on, Abbrederis is a balanced athlete with gliding speed and short-area quickness to create separation in coverage.

12/09/13 - 2013 BURLSWORTH TROPHY WINNER: His football career is far from over, but the journey Wisconsin’s Jared Abbrederis took to the top was worth another look Monday. The senior wide receiver was named the winner of the Burlsworth Trophy as the nation’s most outstanding player that began his career as a walk-on in a ceremony in Springdale, Ark. He won the award over fellow finalists Max Copeland of Missouri and Trey Watts of Tulsa. “You think about the hard work that you put in through the years that brought you to where you are today,” Abbrederis said after accepting the fourth-annual award. “All those memories come back and you’re honored, blessed.”
A semifinalist in 2012, Abbrederis claimed the award following an outstanding regular season that saw him make 73 receptions for a career-high 1,051 yards and seven touchdowns. A consensus first-team All-Big Ten selection, he became the first Wisconsin wide receiver to earn first-team all-conference honors in consecutive seasons since Al Toon in 1983 and 1984. Abbrederis ranks in a tie for second all-time at UW with 23 touchdown receptions. He also ranks second all-time in receiving yards (3,110) and receptions (197). With one game remaining in his career, Abbrederis’ 3,110 career receiving yards rank him ninth in Big Ten history and eighth among all active FBS players. He became just the third player in school history to amass 1,000 receiving yards in a season and is the first at UW to record at least 800 yards in three different seasons. - Wisconsin football
