He attended Shelby High School (Ohio), and played collegiate basketball at Ohio State University. While with the Buckeyes' Siegfried captained their 1960-1961 squad and earned second-team All-American honors.

Following his playing career he returned to Ohio State as an assistant coach, and later coached on the Houston Rockets' staff. In addition, he worked as a motivational speaker.
