Gard's farther, Glen, died of brain cancer in October of 2015. Greg and his brother Jeff honored their father with a scrimmage between Wisconsin and UW-Platteville on October 30th.

"We understand we aren't the only ones to go through it. We weren't the first and unfortunately won't be the last. How can we continue to make a difference?" Greg said at a press conference in Madison on Monday. "To be able to use this platform and to be able to keep everything at work right here in the state." Gard said.
