The Wisconsin Football Coaches Association recently announced their 2023 Academic All-State Award for teams and individuals and the Seneca-Wauzeka-Blue Golds were recognized with a team award as well as seniors Ben Bird and Cohen Redman who each earned individual academic all-state recognition for having a 3.75 cumulative GPA or higher.

“The WFCA recognizes those individuals and teams, regardless of win-loss record, with Academic All-State Award recognition. The team award is purely an academic award that we feel is deserving, as those teams have endured countless hours dedicated to the sport of football while their leaders, the seniors, have still maintained an exceptional GPA and remained dedicated in the classroom. This award represents the team, but more importantly the senior class! 

Individual Academic All-State Qualifications: Any senior with a 3.75 (cumulative) GPA or higher who was a Varsity Letterwinner​

Team Academic All-State Qualification is that group of 5 or more Seniors each carry an average cumulative GPA of 3.33 or higher.”

The five seniors that helped the Blue-Golds earn Team Academic All-State recognition were Bird, Gabe Kapinus, Jonah Klema, Paul Krachey, and Redman.
