Sgt. Schall of Peoria, Arizona graduated from Centennial High School in Peoria in 2001 where he lettered in golf and was a five-time medallist, a record that still stands. He was an all-around athlete and loved fishing, snowboarding, baseball, and basketball, and thoroughly enjoyed being big brother to his sister and brother. He was one step away from being able to whoop his dad, at least according to his dad. He was attending Glendale Community College when 9/11 occurred and enlisted in the U.S. Army soon thereafter. He stayed to complete his A.A. degree in May 2003 and then entered boot camp. In January 2005 he was recognized for his leadership and promoted to sergeant. He is survived by his parents, John and Terri Schall, his sister Jessica and brother Matthew. He is also survived by his jaja, Wally Presmyk; his godparents Les and Paula Presmyk.
