Born in Brice to Francis (1877-1946) and Nora (1889-1966) Sachse. He went to Texas A&M but transferred to Texas Tech after one year. He was not just a basketball player but also a skilled football player, playing both sports in high school, college, and the professional ranks. Not sure why there is a gap in his collegiate career.

Sachse also played pro football in the AAFC.
