Clyde Williams      Iowa Wikipedia 

Clyde Williams attended Shelby High School in Shelby, Iowa.

At Iowa, he was a 3-year starter at quarterback. He led Iowa's new T-formation, and scored 50+ points on four different occasions.

In 1899, Collier's Magazine named him the top quarterback in the West. In 1890, he became Iowa's first all-American. He was also named a 3rd team pick by Walter Camp, the first player west of the Mississippi River to earn the recognition. In four years as a starting quarterback, he never lost a game. From the middle of the 1898 season to the middle of the 1901 season, he went 23–0–3. He earned 11 letters at Iowa, four in football, four in baseball, and three in track.

After serving as an Iowa assistant football coach for two years, he later became the head coach at Iowa State in 1907, and its football stadium was named after him from 1915 through 1975 (before Jack Trice Stadium was built).

Born 3/24/1879 and died on 3/20/1938 at the age of 58.
