CHOPPING es DINING
PBEADYTEQIAN CHUQCH Dick Jones, Pastor
By DOUGLAS PILS Interim Managing Editor
Paul Brotze, a 1987 graduate of New Braunfels High School, recently completed primary flight training at the Naval Air Station in Corpus Christi No. I in his class and is the only one from that class to move on to jet training.
Brotze, who started jet training in Kingsville last Tuesday, almost couldn't qualify to get into the Navy’s flight program — he was too big. Too big, because he was playing noseguard for the Rice Owls.
After playing for the Unicorns’ state semifinalists teams in 1985 and *86, Brotze went to Rice, where he graduated in May of 1992 with a degree in economics. However, playing at 250 pounds Brotze was too heavy to qualify the first time he tried to sign up for flight training.
When he started trying to lose some of the weight he needed to qualify. Owls head coach Fred Goldsmith didn’t like seeing a 250-pound defensive lineman losing pounds.
“I remember Coach Goldsmith came to me at one point and got on to me a little bit for losing the weight,” Brotze said. “He said ‘until you get to the Navy you’re still working for me.' So I got in a little bit of trouble for trying to shed the pounds.”
Brotze started 13 games for Rice in three years, his first coming against Notre Dame in 1988 as a redshift freshman. Because of his redshirt year, Brotze could have been a part of the Owls* first winning season in 29 years tnis season, but he decided to forgo his final year of eligibility to head straight into the Navy.
One reason for his decision was an ailing knee he was afraid of injuring too bad for the Navy to accept. Brotze went straight to Pensacola, Fla., for Aviation Officers Candidacy School.
Brotze called AOCS the most difficult thing he has ever endured.
“That’s something I don’t ever want to have to go through again,” he said. “That was not a good time
at all. It was 18 weeks of living in fear and constant stress. The drill instructors were responsible for instilling discipline and transforming civilians into military officers.
“We started off with 35-ii^ouf class and graduated IO to give you some ideas of the attrition rate.” Brotze said he fully believes that his experiences in athletics allowed him to do well at AOCS.
“I’m convinced that athletics had a lot to do with me making it through as far as my playing here and at Rice,” he said. “A lot of it was physical and a lot of it was mental as well as getting through all the hazing, although the Navy wouldn’t see it as that. It’s seen more as transformation process.”
Brotze, who graduated at the top of his AOCS class, first became interested in flying when he was 16 flying with his father. He obtained his pilot’s license when he was 18.
Brotze is the son of Dr. Gary Brotze, a veterinarian, and Mary Hitch. His stepfather, Bill Hitch is a retired Navy man.
