Paul Kastl

1998 Graduate | Hall of Fame Class of 2015

Paul Kastl serves as one of the elite examples of the many exceptional multi sport athletes that have walked the halls of Pius X. He earned All-City recognition two times and was an All-State and Shrine Bowl selection in football. He still holds the all-time record for most rushing yards per game in school history and sits in the top four in rushing yards in a career, rushing yards in a season, touchdowns in a career, and touchdowns in a season.

Kastl moved on to wrestling season and qualified for the state meet multiple times, winning the 1998 Class A gold medal in the 189 lb. weight class. He spent his spring lettering on the baseball field.

Kastl walked on at the University of Nebraska, earning a football scholarship his junior year. He earned his B.A. in Sociology and moved to Omaha to work for Werner Enterprises as a regional operations manager.

He has been married to his wife Shelly for ten years. The couple has two children, Susie and Will.

Paul Kastl: “I’ll never forget winning those state championships. They were rooted in the grueling two-a-day football practices in 100 degree heat and all the blood, sweat and tears that went with my career in wrestling. My time and memories at Pius will always be treasured. The friends, relationships and faith I gained while attending is what I am most thankful for.”
