Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Samuel Clyde Williams (March 24, 1879 - March 20, 1938) was an All-American football player at the University of Iowa, and a football, basketball, and baseball coach and athletic director at Iowa State University. He is a member of both schools' Halls of Fame. Clyde Williams was born in Shelby, Iowa. He played football for the University of Iowa under coach Alden Knipe. Knipe was a stern disciplinarian, and friction soon arose between Knipe and the older players of the 1898 Hawkeye football team. After Iowa started the season 1-4-1, Ralph Blackmore led the "Blackmore Revolt," in which five upperclassmen quit the team. Knipe simply started younger players, including Clyde Williams, who was a freshman at the time. With Williams at quarterback, Iowa finished the year 2-0-1, ending the season with a 6-5 victory over rival Nebraska. Nebraska had been heavy favorites and were coached by Fielding H. Yost.show more
