From the high school field to the collegiate field is a thought and dream that a lot of high school athletes want to purpose when they think about furthering their athletic and academic careers.

Hermantown high school wide receiver and upcoming senior Peyton Menzel committed to play football and further his academic studies at the University of Minnesota Duluth on Saturday.

In his junior year, Menzel hauled in 40 receptions with seven touchdowns and 579 yards receiving.

Menzel and the Hermantown Hawks are coming off a 6-3 season last year in which they fell in the 7AAAA semifinals.
