Wideouts share painful season

Posted On Sep 17 2020 by

first_imgHenry Mason was there in spirit, Luke Swan was there oncrutches and Paul Hubbard Sr. was there in the stands.Senior receiver Paul Hubbard saved the best for last, catchingseven passes for 134 yards in his best performance at Wisconsin before hismentor, his friend and his father. Given all that has transpired in thereceiving corps this season, every corral was more than just a catch, it was atoken of appreciation.As Hubbard acknowledged during the postgame interviewsfollowing Wisconsin’s emphatic 37-21 win over Michigan, Saturday was foreveryone who couldn’t participate in the spirit and emotion of defeating theNo. 13 team in the country on Senior Day.Before the season began, the receiving corps lost itsdevoted leader and father Henry Mason when he suffered a spinal cord injuryafter falling in his house.Hubbard’s 22-yard reception on the first completion of thegame was for the wide receivers coach, giving credit to what he has gonethrough this season and what he has meant to the program.Two weeks into the season Hubbard himself went down with asprained right knee. Initially, based on the pain, he thought it was season-ending.Not wanting to deter his teammates as they attempted to battle back againstUNLV, he kept it to himself. That put the entire burden on Swan, who now had toplay for his coach and teammate.But soon he too would fall, tearing his hamstring on a playacross the middle against Illinois.Insert freshmen David Gilreath and Kyle Jefferson. Whilethey took advantage of the injuries to get better through invaluable playingtime, the entire offense clearly missed the dependability and care of Mason,Swan and Hubbard.Racing back from his injury, Hubbard provided that emotionallift the Wisconsin offense so desperately needed following two straight losses.He returned Oct. 20 against Northern Illinois — at least a week earlier thanthe estimated six to eight weeks he was originally slated to miss.No injury is a good one, but it offered Hubbard, and laterSwan, a new perspective that they had begun to overlook after coming to UW aswalk-on nobodies freshman year. “Once you get going through the season, you get complacent,saying, ‘There’s nothing that’s going to happen.’ I mean, you never think thatyou’re going to get hurt and be done,” Hubbard said. “You take it for granted.”Once you get hurt, you have to go through the situation, gofrom being successful to being on the bottom of the mat. It gives you a lot oftime to get humble.”It made them more empathetic to others’ problems, knowing theywill never again be able to run out on the field as a member of the WisconsinBadgers.”I take a look at what happened to my teammates like LukeSwan, and maybe this time next year he’s going to be able to walk again, mayberun again,” Hubbard said. “I think about stuff like that– the other guys aroundme — and [it] doesn’t make me feel as bad about what happened to me.”During Hubbard’s time in a leg immobilizer, it was Swan whopicked him up when times looked bleak.Ever since Hubbard returned he has done the same for hisfriend.”He’s been that smiling face that I can talk to whenever,”Swan said. “It’s just good that I can have someone to lean on like that.”Hubbard’s 25-yard snare on first-and-19 in the openingquarter was for himself, to rekindle his draft stock and to show that theHubbard of old is back. Catches of 14 and 19 yards, and a spectacular juggling15-yard reception were for Swan, giving him a chance to live through hisfriend.To the Fennimore Flash, the season hasn’t been perfect byany means. Still, he has no regrets.”I think in life you’ve got to deal with what’s given to you,and I think the team has done a great job with that,” Swan said.Hubbard’s father might have waited until the last game ofhis son’s career to attend a Badgers game, but Hubbard didn’t mind; it made theappearance that much more significant. The senior’s final two receptions inCamp Randall — 10 and 29 yards — were for his pops.Anyone on the team will tell you that this season ofsetbacks, particularly in the wide receiving corps, couldn’t have happened tobetter people. After interviewing them and covering them this season, Icouldn’t agree more. Kevin Hagstrom is asenior majoring in economics and journalism.
