Born in tiny Iola, Wisc., and raised in nearby Rothschild, Krieg lived his young life so far removed from the NFL spotlight that even the moon seemed more within reach. His father, Myron, was a dairy farmer who gave his family a modest life but never had much time to chase any of his own athletic endeavors. Even when Myron’s son David became the starting quarterback at D.C. Everest High School in nearby Schofield, there was no hint that a prolonged football career might be in the cards. Everest High ran a Power-I formation that featured the running game, and so Dave Krieg became adept at handing the ball off but never got to show enough as a passer to bring any college scouts to Schofield.

And yet, thanks to a high school coach with connections, Dave Krieg would continue to play beyond the high school level.
