WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Wake Forest senior tight end Cam Serigne today was named a semifinalist for the National Football Foundation’s Campbell Trophy which is awarded each year to college football’s top scholar-athlete.

Serigne, a 6-3, 240-pound redshirt senior from Ashburn, Virginia (Briar Woods), is one of 181 national semifinalists. The NFF will announced 12 to 14 finalists on Nov. 1. Each of the finalists will receive an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship. In 2016, Wake Forest safety Ryan Janvion was a finalist for the Campbell Trophy. He became the first Demon Deacon to be so honored.

Serigne is Wake Forest’s all-time leader in career touchdown receptions by a tight end with 15. For his career, Serigne has 136 career receptions for 1,627 yards. He is on target to set school records for career receptions and career receiving yards by a tight end.

The William V. Campbell Trophy, known as the “Academic Heisman” is named in honor of the late Bill Campbell, former chairman of Intuit, former player and head coach at Columbia University. The Campbell Trophy is a 25-pound bronze trophy and increases the recipient’s grant by $7,000 for a total postgraduate scholarship of $25,000 which is endowed by HealthSouth.

This year's postgraduate scholarships will push the program's all-time distribution to more than $11.3 million. Since 2013, the Campbell Trophy® has been prominently displayed inside its official home at the New York Athletic Club.
