Gaglianone dances on to big stage with Badgers

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -

It only took a quarter for the Badgers' new kicker to announce his presence. Freshman Rafael Gaglianone nailed a 51-yard field goal against LSU. That impressive shot was overshadowed only by the Brazil native's celebration salsa dance.

"I don't know. It just kind of happened on the moment. I'm a pretty happy guy on the field. I just got to enjoy the moment. I just did a little dance with the teammates. I just went with it. I've done a bunch of dances."

Badger fans would like to see more of those dances. The kicking game was a struggle last season. So, the coaching staff wasted no time handing the job to the true freshman with the big leg. Gaglianone responded with Wisconsin's first field goal of more than 50 yards since 2009.
