The Xavier Saints’ football team has started a new season with another Schulte. Mr. Reggie Schulte is a new math teacher and varsity football coach at Xavier High School. He graduated in 2013 and was the quarterback for the Saints. Schulte has always enjoyed sports, especially football.

As a new coach, he likes being a part of the team and wants to help the players grow to earn success.

“I have had a lot of great coaches who inspired me and formed me into the person I am today,” Schulte said.

He hopes to have an impact on the players he coaches in a similar way.

“I think the players have done a good job of working hard in the off-season and summer. However, we have still got a long ways to go to where we need to be as a team,” Schulte said.

While Schulte has been coaching the team, he has had the opportunity to coach with his father, head coach Duane Schulte. He has also got the chance to coach his brother, senior Quinn Schulte.

“It’s fun to be able to have him around to analyze the game with and also joke around with,” Quinn Schulte said. “He has taught me so much growing up in terms of knowledge of the game and has helped my teammates who grew up with me.”

Reggie Schulte hopes the team can stay focused on having small goals such as getting a little better every day. He thinks it will help the bigger goals take care of themselves.

Quinn Schulte says they are going to do the best they can do and see what happens after that.

The Xavier football team is currently 3-0, winning against the Regina Regals 44-7, the Decorah Vikings 45-3, and the Davenport Assumption Knights 48-0. The Saints next appearance will be away against West Delaware Friday, September 14 at 7:30 p.m.
