Excerpt: John William Heisman (October 23, 1869 October 3, 1936) was a prominent American football player and college football and college baseball coach in the early era of the sport and is the namesake of the Heisman Trophy awarded annually to the season's most outstanding college football player. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio, but grew up in Titusville, Pennsylvania, where he played football for Titusville High School, graduating in 1887. He went on to play football at Brown University (18871889) and at the University of Pennsylvania (18901891). He coached at Oberlin College in 1892, went to Buchtel College in 1893, and returned to Oberlin the next year. In 1895, he became the fifth coach at Auburn University, where he stayed for five years. Auburn is the only school to have a Heisman Trophy winner where he coached. In 1900, Heisman went to Clemson University, where he coached four successful seasons. A street on the campus bears his name today to honor him. He moved from Clemson to Georgia Tech in 1904, whose athletic teams had performed poorly. While at Tech, Heisman coached football and baseball, and was paid $2,250 and 30 percent of attendance fees; later in his time at Tech, his salary went up and the percentage of receipts went down. Heisman eventually also coached basketball and track, became the head of the Atlanta Baseball Association and the athletic director of the Atlanta Athletic Club. He cut back on these expanded duties in 1918, when he only coached football between September 1 and December 15. In football, Heisman put together 16 spectacular seasons, including three undefeated seasons and a 32-game undefeated streak. In his first year, his team had satisfying victories over Tennessee, Florida, and Cumberland; a tie with his last. More:
