Lincoln Pius X Catholic High School

Don Houser

1958 Graduate | Hall of Fame 2014

Don Houser serves as one of the many storied athletes who first took the field to represent Pius X, beginning a tradition of excellence entrusted to future generations. While a multi-year letter winner in track and basketball, newspapers describe Houser as a punishing runner with the football and an excellent all-around athlete. He was honored with all-city and all-state football honors in 1957.

Houser attended the University of Nebraska after high school and married his high school sweetheart Donna ’58. Houser spent his life in Lincoln as a small business owner and raised three sons. Randy ’83 and Dana ’90 both graduated from Pius X. Houser’s grandchildren continue to attend Pius X as well. Don passed to his eternal rest in 2000, but his legacy as one of the founding fathers of Pius X athletics continues with the dawn of the 59th year of Pius X football.

Lincoln Journal Star: “Don Houser, the bruising Pius X fullback, clinched the city scoring title by scoring twice in the second half of a come from behind win over Auburn, delivering Auburn’s only Class B loss of the season and giving Pius X a 5-1 record to finish the 1957 campaign.”
