Former Raider Kraig Urbik addresses a packed house in the high school east gym in front of a line of "Future Raiders" displaying signs recognizing his achievements at a ceremony honoring Urbik at halftime of the Raider boys' basketball team's game against Eau Claire North Friday night.

Urbik, a 2004 HHS graduate, was a first-team all-state selection when he played Raider football before earning All-American honors at the University of Wisconsin. He was selected in the third round of the 2009 NFL draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers and has spent the last three seasons with the Buffalo Bills.

Current Raider football coach Adam Kowles read a proclamation at the ceremony retiring Urbik's No. 60 Raider jersey.
