KAUKAUNA — Three Kaukauna High School seniors on Tuesday revealed plans to continue their educations while playing football after graduation.

Carson Sippel, Will Campbell and Kyle Seefeldt held a joint signing ceremony after school in the high school library.

Sippel will attend Winona State University in Winona, Minnesota, Campbell is off to Carroll University in Waukesha and Seefeldt will attend Upper Iowa University in Fayette, Iowa.

Campbell, who will compete in both football and track for the Pioneers, is the 2021 recipient of the John Anderson Award as the most outstanding senior linebacker in Wisconsin.

Sippel, the Ghosts outstanding wide receiver, said on Twitter, “I am very grateful for all of the relationships built and lessons learned throughout this entire process. With that being said, I am 100% committed to Winona State University! #GoWarriors.”
