David Braun in UW Football Book

David Braun ’98 is featured in the book  Walk-On This Way: The On-Going Legacy of the Wisconsin Football Walk-On Program, which was released just before Christmas 2016. The book covers the stories of nearly 50 walk-ons from the past 25 years of Badger football. 
The Edgewood Athletic Association inducted David into the Athletic Hall of Fame in 2015. As a football player at Edgewood, David earned All-City and All-Conference First Team honors in 1996 and 1997 as a wide receiver and defensive back. He also picked up a position on the AP All-State Second Team in 1997 as a wide receiver and was named the All-Area Large Schools Player of the Year. As a senior he was the choice for Back of the Year by the WFCA and was selected to play in the 1998 Annual Shrine All Star Football Bowl Game. Over his career, David earned more than 1,000 yards in 80 receptions with just 11 interceptions and also picked up 700 yards returning the ball. He took the ball into the end zone for 17 touchdowns. He says,“I have great memories of my teammates and coaches and how involved and dedicated everyone was.”

Matt D’Amour’s Yumbutter venture continues to grow

Matt D’Amour ’00 and business partner Adrian Reif launched the Yumbutter brand from farmers’ markets to grocery stores in 2011. Their company, located in Madison,  recently merged with two others: RP’s Pasta Company, owned by Peter Robertson of Madison, and Ona Treats of Colorado. The umbrella company is Tribe 9.

Matt said the reason for the merger was to “leverage our resources on all fronts: human resources, financial resources, manufacturing resources, distribution resources.” He also notes that the primary thing Yumbutter brings to the newly formed Tribe 9 is marketing prowess. “We shine at being able to express, create and inspire people with an amazing story. We bring the innovation in terms of pushing the envelope with the sustainability aspect, and making sure we can infuse Tribe 9 with that as well.”

An entrepreneur at heart, Matt started out helping his parents with their business, then formed a landscaping company with college friends, and then founded his own holistic health practiced titled “Inside Out Wellness” after that. He continues his interest in natural, locally sourced foods and wellness at Yumbutter, where Matt’s title is Chief Wellness Carrier.
