Schriever began his sports business career with the Texas Rangers Baseball Club in 1984 as a season ticket sales intern. He became a full-time staff member in the spring of 1985 and was promoted to director of ticket operations prior to the 1989 season. The Rangers underwent a variety of changes during Schriever’s 12-year tenure with the franchise: the team was purchased by an ownership group headed by George W. Bush, acquired pitcher Nolan Ryan, closed Arlington Stadium, opened The Ballpark in Arlington and hosted the 1995 Major League Baseball All-Star Game.

During the summer of 1996, Schriever worked with the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games at the Summer Olympics. He worked in ticketing as a customer service manager at Fulton County Stadium and Olympic Stadium.

Following the Olympic Games, Schriever joined the Texas Motor Speedway in Ft. Worth as director of tickets. He was part of the management staff that opened the Speedway in the spring of 1997 to a debut crowd of more than 200,000 for its inaugural Winston Cup race.

Schriever is a graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University, where he earned a degree in business management. He and his wife, Dana, who holds a degree in teaching from the University of Texas, have two children, Nicholas and Sarah.
