Why Wisconsin?
"I chose Wisconsin so I can play for my state school and gain an education. The coaching staff is second to none and helped me easily come to the decision to choose Wisconsin. The athletic tradition I will be immersed in is possibly one of the best in the nation. Most importantly, I am able to be closer to my family while playing the sport I love."

Trask on Roettgers:
"Mike is another top player from the state who has decided to transfer home after spending one year at St. Louis University. Mike was identified at camp prior to signing with SLU, and we feel that his goal-scoring and quality around the box will make us a more dangerous team in the coming years. Mike suffered a tough injury in his high school career, but with his knee fully recovered we know he has the instincts and ability to help UW immediately."
