David Schreiner died at the age of 25 in Okinawa in WWII, but in his short life he had a big impact on Wisconsin sports. The Lancaster native starred as an end for the University of Wisconsin 1940-42. He earned All American honors two of his years at UW and was co-captain of the Badgers.
Schreiner played both offense and defense. He was a strong blocker as well as solid pass catcher.
Also an exceptional student, Schreiner postponed preparation for a medical career to enter the Marines. He served with distinction in the Pacific before his death in 1945.
