Winona State senior Ryan Danczak will be boarding a plane for the first time ever this weekend.
And the inaugural flight couldn’t have come under sweeter circumstances.
The 22-year-old Marshfield, Wis. native won the Richfield, Minn., tour leg of the Best Buy Ultimate Gamers Showdown, coming out on top of a 50-player field on Thursday, Dec. 12. All in front of nearly 500 spectators, including Vikings running back Toby Gerhart.
Danczak won an all-expenses paid trip to Dallas to compete against seven of the nation’s best Madden 25® players on the world’s largest HD screen at AT&T Stadium.
