Badgers forward Tyler Wahl keeps checking off items on his list of childhood goals. he has to go one more

“I think I’m a guy who’s easily accessible,” Wahl said. “I felt that throughout the fall, and throughout the summer, a lot of people would come up to me and ask me questions not only about basketball, but about school, about life, whatever. I’m just a boy. I am with whom they can ask questions and I am ready for them.”

As a freshman, Wahl relied on upper-class men such as Brevin Pritzl, D’Amitrique Trice and Alim Ford. Last season there were six seniors in the team.

He is one of only three returning rotational players this season and admits he has faced some challenges to take on the leadership role.

“I’m a quiet man,” Wahl said. “I have to find my voice and speak up for the things I believe in.”

He said he’s now the guy who rallies in the locker room or speaks for players who aren’t quite comfortable with it yet – even going to get team credit cards so that the Badgers can eat food. Or go out for any other bonding event.

Brad Davison, the oldest member of the team, has said that Wahl has stepped into the role of “father” in the team. According to Davison, Wahl is a “new dad” who is finding his way through things, but is still someone other players are looking for comfort.

It is a leap from his freshman year, when he was called “son” by Pritzl, who was seen by Wahl. He also called Pritzl his “father” on the team.
