Don Stueve (Inducted 1986)

By Craig Olson

Don Stueve Biography from the Hall of Fame Sports Banquet, April 28, 1986.
 
It was a milestone for Otter football coach Don Stuve when he coached his 100th victory for Fergus Falls High School in the fall of 1983.  Last fall (1985) he completed his 19th season at Fergus High and has a winning record of 117-57-1.
 
A native of Henning who later starred as an athlete at the University of North Dakota, Stueve has had 15 winning seasons as football coach for the Otters since 1967.  Since that time he has taken two Otter teams to the state play-offs, two squads to inter-conference playoffs, and two teams into the section play-offs.
 
"His teams are always well prepared and ready to play when game time rolls around," says Barney Gervais, whose sons played football under Stueve.  "His record here in Fergus Falls is nothing short of outstanding."
 
From 1982 to 1985 Stueve-coached Otter football teams have compiled a record of 30 wins and only 10 losses, twice gaining the sectional play-offs and once gaining the state play-offs, in 1982.
 
Stueve was a 4-sport star athlete at Henning High School, in football, basketkball, baseball, and track, gaining honors as an all-conference football selection.  He was a fullback from the University of North Dakota football teams where he played for four years (gaining all-conference honors two years), also playing baseball at UND for three years.  During his three years in the U.S. Air Force he played football as a fullback and was also on the traveling softball team, as a catcher.
 
Before coming to Fergus Falls, Stueve coached at Breckenridge, Pelican Rapids, and Montevideo.  He and his wife, Marlene, have three sons, Wade, Chad, and Ned.
