Big Season in Sights for Badger's Corey Clement

Posted: Updated:

The Badgers welcomed thousands of fans to Camp Randall on Sunday for their annual Football Family Media Day, but the real grind starts Monday morning with their first practice that kicks off the next two weeks of fall camp. The Badgers have weapons on both sides of the ball returning this season including at the running back position with Corey Clement.

Clement's junior season was plagued by a sports hernia, but he says he's healthy now and taking it one game at a time.

 "I set myself up for failure last year with so many preseason goals and hype." Said Clement. "Feeding into all the Heisman hopefuls and all that. I think I just got bit in the rear end by it. Being too hype and not focusing on the task at hand and staying in the moment."

The Badgers finished (6-2) in the Big Ten in 2015, much the season without Clement, allowing fellow senior running back Dare Ogunbowale to step into the lime light. All part of a learning experience for Clement.

"You know you gotta learn and sometimes you gotta learn by making mistakes. And you know what? That was Corey last year and I think that he's taken all that to heart and he wants to be the best player he can be but also the best person he can be." Said Clement.

The Badgers open their season on September 3rd against LSU at Lambeau Field.
