William Roper

A member of the College Football Hall of Fame, William Roper coached Missouri for just one unbeaten season in 1909.

The Tigers finished 7-0-1 and won the Missouri Valley Conference title in 1909. But Roper, a three-sport athlete at Princeton, coached the Tigers in New Jersey three different times.

Roper won four national championships in three different decades as Princeton’s coach. The winningest football coach in Princeton history, the school named its highest annual honor for a male athlete after him. He also worked to repeal prohibition as a politician.
