Bronson Koenig is role model on the court and on the reservation
But Koenig's story is about so much more than basketball, as he is one of only a few Native Americans playing college ball.
Koenig, 21, is a member of Wisconsin's Ho-Chunk Nation. His success on the court, as well his pride of his heritage, is turning him into a role model across the country. He said it's a role he embraces.
"In the past few years, I've been getting a lot of support from just native country, from different tribes, reservations and all that," he told WISN 12's Mike Gousha. "I'm just trying to be a role model where there's not very many role models at all."
