Thomas H. Schultze

A quarterback who never lost a game he started at Governor Thomas Johnson High School, Thomas H. Schultze led the Patriots to a 10–0 season in 1970 and career 19–0 record. He earned a scholarship to Virginia Military Institute and led the freshman team to an undefeated season. As a varsity starter, he ranked seventh in the U.S., setting VMI records: passing yards, 2,998; completions, 236; offensive plays, 638; total offense, 2,602 yards. These numbers were achieved against Tulane, Georgia Tech, Maryland, West Virginia, and others. His expertise has become the standard by which area players are measured. Schultze was a step ahead of the rest.
