Early years Edit

Schottenheimer was born in Denver, Colorado. He prepped at Blue Valley High School in Stilwell, Kansas, where he quarterbacked his team to the Kansas Class 5A state football championship in 1991, while earning first-team all-state and honorable mention high school All-American honors.
