Mount Si Football's star kicker Cameron Van Winkle gives nod to Huskies

The boy with the golden foot now has a golden educational opportunity.

Mount Si High School junior Cameron Van Winkle, who broke many records for the Wildcat football team as their kicker last fall, has verbally committed to kick the ball for the University of Washington.

Head Coach Charlie Kinnune reports that after a hectic month of May, and being recruited by coaching staff from Washington State, Arizona State, Oregon, California and Fresno State, Van Winkle chose to be a Husky.

"He is now excited to enter his senior season at Mount Si High School with his decision being made," Kinnune said.

Van Winkle is expected to be a big part of the Wildcat football season this year.
