Mayville defensive lineman Brad Bushke
The Tim Krumrie Award is given annually to the state's top senior defensive lineman as part of the WSN Senior Football Awards. The award is named after Tim Krumrie, a former Mondovi and University of Wisconsin athlete who would go on to star in the NFL for 12 seasons, including two Pro Bowl appearances.
The pre-season list has been trimmed down to 26 semi-finalists, with five finalists chosen after Level 1 of the playoffs. Winners are announced the week of the state finals.
