Captain Kreiter


Now, Kreiter is trying to repay the favor, becoming a role model for younger student-athletes by becoming a science education major and wanting to become a teacher.

“I just want to do the same for kids that others did for me when I was growing up,” he said. “I love interacting with young adults, because I wouldn’t have gotten where I’ve gotten without the people I looked up to growing up.”

Kreiter spent this semester working on his practicum at Iowa City Regina.

Kreiter is trying to follow in his dad’s footsteps in becoming a teacher. Before taking his present duties at DeWitt, Kurt was a biology teacher.

Before Kreiter can think about becoming a teacher, however, he still has one more football game to play on New Year’s Day against LSU.

“They’re a great team and they play in a great conference,” he said. “I think this is a good game for us, because we love challenges, it’s what we’ve been faced against since the beginning of the year. I think if we play within our game plan, I think we’ll be happy with the outcome.”
