Shooter. NASCAR nut. Nice dude. How do you sum up Ben Brust's career in a thousand words or less? You don't. I needed at least 1,700 to describe the Wisconsin senior's journey.

Senior Salute: Zach Bohannon

Nobody squeezed more out of the full UW student-athlete experience in three years than Zach Bohannon.
