Schwab was a baseball and basketball player at Stivers HS, with the basketball team winning the state title in all his three years there. Most uniquely, the 1919 state title was won by Stivers despite playing the last eight minutes with only four players on the floor.
Schwab played basketball professionally, and also was a minor league baseball star who never made the major leagues but was invited to the Cincinnati Reds training camp in 1927. He later became a golf pro and instructor and won various senior tournaments.

Harry and his wife, Eunice, had three sons.
