He earned a degree in Early Childhood Education from UW-Stout in 2010 and is looking forward to teaching in his hometown and getting involved in the community. Secraw earned varsity letters in football, basketball and baseball for the Vikings and plans to help out in the coaching department somewhere in the future.
