Cam Serigne talks decision

The current recruiting roll Wake Forest is on helped bring in their sixth overall commitment in from the Old Dominion State. Now that summer is upon us so are one day camps. It didn't take Cam Serigne, a 6-foot-3, 225-pound tight end from Briar Woods High School, long to commit after being offered following the Wake Forest camp.


"It's been a long process," said Cam Serigne. "I talked things over with my family and decided Wake Forest was where I needed to be.

"My criteria was to go to a good program with great people who could make me a successful player at the next level. Wake Forest met every aspect of what I was looking for.

"I had 10 offers. I made visits to UVA, Temple, ODU, James Madison, William & Mary, and was planning a visit to Stanford. I cancelled the Stanford visit because I already know where my heart is, and that's at Wake Forest."

Serigne says he met with Steed Lobotzke and Jonathan Himebauch at the Wake Forest camp and was impressed with what they thought about his game.

"I felt like they're both great guys," he said. "Coach Himebauch recruits my area, and Coach Lobo is who I'll be working with at tight end. It was Coach Lobo who offered me. He said he liked me at H-back. He liked my ability to stretch the field, my footwork, and said I was the perfect size."

At Briar Woods, Serigne has been an integral part of back-to-back Virginia AA Division 4 state championships for the Falcons.

"Last season I had 54 catches for 709 yards and 10 touchdowns," Serigne said. "I played tight end, wide receiver, and linebacker. I perfected my route running, and did better at getting in and out of pressure. What separates me most is my work ethic. I'm constantly working hard to get better."

Briar Woods goes for their third consecutive state championship in the fall. Serigne says he believes the Falcons can attain their goal if they stay "humble and hungry."

Serigne has also played baseball and basketball in high school and reports a 4.0 GPA. He and his family both are looking forward to another visit to Winston-Salem.

"My Dad fell in love with Wake Forest the moment he set foot on campus," he said. "He really liked the Business Law program, which is what I'm looking at studying."

Briar Woods High School is in the city of Ashburn. They defeated Christianburg last December, 28-26, to win state in a game played at Liberty University.
