Kyle's desire to become a sports commentator developed from his love of sports and his xBox.


One of the missions of the Kyle Zuleg Foundation is to provide scholarships to students who want to pursue a media communications degree. Kyle had aspirations of becoming a sports broadcaster. Kyle was a member of the Wildcat Weekly News program and always enjoyed being a commentator. One of the fundraising events was initiated by the Neuqua Valley High School volleyball players. It was just a few months after Kyle's accident that Kyle's teammates got together and sold Kyle Adam Zuleg #17 wristbands to remember Kyle as a person and an athlete and because it was something they could keep with them wherever they went. Kyle's jersey number was 17.

The first Kyle Zuleg Foundation Scholarship was announced on May 25, 2011 at Neuqua's Senior Awards Assembly. The first recipient of the scholarship was Jack Korte. Jack will be attending University of Missouri and will be majoring in media communications. The scholarship will be given out annually to District 203 and 204 high schools as well as Benet Academy. To apply for a scholarship please refer to your school website where scholarships are listed.
