Dana Schulz was an outstanding two-sport athlete at Napa high School and later at Napa Junior College. Schulz was a standout center and linebacker on the 1964 NBL Championship Napa Indian team. He led the team in tackles, recovered 10 fumbles and intercepted two passes. Schulz was captain of the 1965 Indian football team and had another outstanding year as fullback on offense and linebacker on defense. As a catcher on the 1965 Napa High baseball team, Schulz won All-NBL honors for his fine defense and .344 batting average for the league champions. In 1966, Schulz repeated his All-NBL performance with a .322 average for the repeat champions. The Napa High team, which won 17 games in a row, finished third in the Tournament of Champions. Schulz continued his fine play in both sports for Napa Junior College where he won All-GVC recognition for his two years as a football guard and two years as a baseball catcher. His stellar play at Napa Junior College earned Schulz a football scholarship to Utah State, where he was a starter for two years. Schulz has gone on to a successful career as a building contractor and motel owner in Gold Beach, Oregon.
