Blugold Hall of Fame
Jeff Wilson was an offensive lineman on the Blugolds' conference championship teams of 1981 and 1983 blocking for two of the university's greatest running backs in Roger Vann and Lee Weigel. During Wilson's three years as a starter, the Blugolds produced 9-1, 7-3 and 8-2 records and were unbeaten in their conference games at Carson Park during that stretch, going 21-3 overall in league play. The 1981 squad was one of a handful of WIAC teams to go unbeaten during an eight-game conference campaign.
The 1983 Blugold team MVP was an NAIA First Team All-American that year after being selected to the All-Conference and NAIA All-District 14 teams.
Wilson was coached in high school at Crandon, Wisconsin by current Chippewa Falls High School coach Chuck Raykovich.
