Bryce, a senior and star football player, was dispatched to the bench in favor of Quinn, a sophomore and a kid who grew up battling his older brothers in the back yard.
A less confident athlete might have sulked and moped about the situation, but not Bryce Schulte.
Schulte was asked Monday night if there have been any fights in their house about who gets to start.
"No, not over starting," he said, smiling. "Maybe some other things, but not over that."
Both Schultes were in the starting lineup Monday night when the Saints whipped DeWitt Central, 70-30, in the opening round of the Class 3A playoffs at Mount Vernon High School.
Quinn Schulte has started the last 10 games after replacing his brother in the lineup. Bryce Schulte, who started the first 12 games of the season, has returned to the starting lineup the last two games with Jackson Joens sidelined while trying to fully recover from a concussion.
The Schultes combined for 17 points Monday as Xavier (11-11) earned a date with seventh-ranked Mount Vernon (17-5) in the district finals Thursday at 7 p.m. at Mount Vernon.
