Luke Swan, former Wisconsin Badger and, for those familiar with my home area of southwest WI, Fennimore Golden Eagle wide receiver, was selected as a finalist for a new reality TV show on Spike TV. Twelve athletes will compete for a spot on the Dallas Cowboys training camp roster.
A walk on player who made a name for himself while at Madison, had is collegiate career cut short by a hamstring injury. He then went undrafted in 2008, but signed as a free agent with the Kansas City Chiefs. That stint didn't last long as he re-aggravated his injury. Now he once again as a chance to try and make a NFL team. While the odds are probably low, it would be fun to watch Swan catching passes from a fellow southern Wisconsinite, Tony Romo.
The show called, "4th and Long", will air on May 18 at 9pm on Spike TV.
