Times-Villager: The Kimberly football team has been beyond impressive on the field.
The Papermakers haven’t lost a game in three seasons, compiling a 42-0 record since 2013. They won their third consecutive state championship in dramatic fashion in November, coming back from 21 points down in the second half to beat Arrowhead in the final minutes.
But what may be perhaps even more impressive than the team’s on-field exploits is what the players have done off the field. Along with 42 straight wins, the Papermakers have put together a collective team GPA over 3.5 the past three seasons.
For the first time ever this year, the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association has awarded academic all-state honors, and just like they’ve done on the field, the Makers have proven themselves the best team in the state. Ten Kimberly seniors were named academic allstate with a GPA of over 3.75, more than any other team in any division in Wisconsin.
