Like a lot of athletes, Ankeny football player Keeghan Warner wanted to continue his career at the collegiate level, but part of his decision-making process included financial considerations.
Warner, a place-kicker, found the right fit in Simpson College. He announced his verbal commitment to the Storm over the weekend.
“I looked at a pretty good amount of schools, and it was a pretty tough decision to commit now because I could have kept looking for other opportunities,” said Warner. “But Simpson is just a really good fit because I like how it’s close to everything, and I heard the business program is really good. Along with my academic scholarship, it came down to a really good price per year.”
Warner helped Ankeny to a 9-2 record last season. The Hawks reached the Class 5A quarterfinals before falling to Johnston.
Warner made all eight of his field-goal attempts, including one from 41 yards. He also converted 40-of-42 PAT tries.
Warner was a second-team all-district pick.
