Political life

Schoeppel's early political life began as county attorney in Ness County, Kansas and was one of the early local officials for Ness City.[3] Later he was elected mayor of Ness City and also served as chairman of the Kansas Corporation Commission.[4]

Schoeppel broke his allegiance to Kansas in 1952 when he supported Senator Robert A. Taft for president over Dwight D. Eisenhower.

College football

Schoeppel played college football from 1920 to 1922 while attending the University of Nebraska and made "honorable mention" on one of Walter Camp's first All-America football teams.[5] He served as the head football coach at Fort Hays State University for one season, in 1929, compiling a record of 2–5. Schoeppel filled in as head coach while his predecessor, William D. Weidein, was on sabbatical. Weidein did not return after his one-year sabbatical. After Schoeppel completed his one year as head coach, the school's program was taken over by W. C. "Jack" Riley.[6]
