Lincoln Pius X Catholic High School

Mick Ziegler

1964 Graduate | Hall of Fame Class of 2014

Mick Ziegler was a rare four-sport star for Pius X, amassing more varsity letters than any athlete in school history. He attended the University of Nebraska on a full football scholarship and started at wide receiver for the Huskers, earning two letters. After earning a degree in business, Ziegler joined the Air National Guard and attended Air Force Pilot Training in Lubbock, Texas. He graduated at the top of his class and earned his Air Force wings. While serving as a corporate pilot for First National Bank, Ziegler experienced flying an RF-4C fighter plane at more than twice the speed of sound!

Ziegler began a 29 year career with American Airlines in 1976, recording more than 17,000 hours of flight time before retiring in 2005. He now works as a home builder in the Dallas-Forth Worth area. Ziegler resides with his wife Cyndie in Euless, Texas, and has a son, Travis.

Ziegler: “It is a tremendous and quite humbling honor to be selected in the inaugural class of the PX Athletic Hall of Fame. So many great athletes have passed through the doors over 58 years, this honor is very gratifying to me. Pius X gave me the foundation that allowed my life to be successful, and I have been blessed in so many ways, including lifelong friendships that began over half a century ago and still exist today.”
