KAUKAUNA — The Kaukauna Galloping Ghosts open the 2023 football season at home Thursday with a 7 p.m. game against Ashwaubenon.

Watch the livestream HERE from Zaleski sports or in the video player below.

Zaleski Sports is Wisconsin’s largest sports broadcast network with over 1,600 games broadcast annually.

They say their mission is to show the hard work of Wisconsin high school student athletes in a positive light to viewers statewide.

These broadcasts will include play-by-play, commentary and post-game interviews with players and coaches.

Among the top returning players are Mitch Verstegen, an Indiana University commit and safety Carson Van Dinter, an Iowa State commit and QB Finnley Doriot, named to this year’s Post-Crescent Elite-11 team.

The Ghosts advanced to the state semifinal game last season before falling to West De Pere one game short of a trip to Madison.

The freshmen will play their game prior to the varsity contest, so bleachers will be cleared immediately following that game.

Admission is $5/adult, $2/student and over 60 are free. Gates for varsity will open at 6 p.m.
