Blooming Prairie’s John Rumpza Signs With Winona State University
Blooming Prairie senior John Rumpza signed a national letter of intent to attend Winona State University and play football.
Rumpza capped an amazing prep career, helping to lead Blooming Prairie to a state tournament appearance in November. In three years quarterbacking the high-octane offense of the Awesome Blossoms, he threw for nearly 9,000 yards and 112 touchdowns. Rumpza completed about 62 percent of his passes. Blooming Prairie compiled a 30-4 record over that time. The team twice finished as section runner-up before winning the 1A crown in 2014.
Wednesday was National Signing Day for high school athletes.
