The Campbell Trophy is awarded to the best scholar-athlete in the country every season that exemplifies academic success, on-field football performance and leadership. This is a great honor for Henningsen, who is currently pursuing his master’s degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

In addition to graduating with his bachelor’s degree in three years, the former walk-on has been named Academic All-Big Ten in all three of his seasons with the Badgers.

Matt Henningsen has been truly phenomenal on and off the field in his time at Wisconsin and it is exciting to see him receiving acknowledgment for what he has accomplished so far.
