Dave Letzler was an English graduate student at Temple University, where he captained their quiz bowl team. He was previously a member of the Williams quiz bowl team, which he captained his junior and senior years.
After spending his high school career in the qb wasteland of Long Island, Letzler joined the Williams qb team in 2002-2003. His most notable achievements came his senior year, where he revived the defunct Lemur Bowl trash tournament, took Williams to what may have been their first three ACF events, helped win the 2006 NAQT ICT Undergraduate Championship, and developed an uninteresting feud with Dan Passner. That summer, he finished second in the Chicago Open Classical Name That Tune competition.
He attempted to go into semi-retirement at the start of 2006-2007, only competing as part of an exhibition team at Penn Bowl, but by fall 2007 that attempt finally collapsed when he founded the Temple qb team.
Letzler wrote nearly a third of the 2007 Chicago Open Literature Tournament, and slightly under a quarter of the 2007 Illinois Open Literature Tournament. He is also a freelance question writer for NAQT.
