Harrison Samuel "Sam" Francis (October 26, 1913 – April 23, 2002) was an American football player and coach, Olympic shot putter, and Army officer.

Biography[edit]

Francis was born in Dunbar, Nebraska, and graduated from high school in Oberlin, Kansas.

He played college football at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where, in 1936, he was the runner-up for the Heisman Trophy.[1] Francis was also an exceptional athlete in track and field and placed fourth in the shot put at the 1936 Summer Olympics.[2]

Francis was the first overall selection in the 1937 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. His rights were traded to the Chicago Bears in exchange for Bill Hewitt and $4,000 in cash on February 15, 1937.[3] He played in the NFL for four years with the Bears, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Brooklyn Dodgers before leaving to get a master's degree at the University of Iowa and serve in the Army during World War II.

After gaining experience serving as head coach for the football team at Camp Lee during World War II, Francis was hired as the head football coach at Kansas State University for the 1947 season. Francis coached at Kansas State for one year, compiling a record of 0–10.

Francis remained in the Army, serving in Korea and Vietnam, and held the rank of Lieutenant Colonel upon retirement. He is buried in Springfield National Cemetery.

Coaching career[edit]

Francis served as the 21st head football coach at Kansas State University, helming the team for the 1947 season. He is the only Kansas State football coach to lose every game that he coached. The program's first coach, Ira Pratt, was winless in his one season in 1896, but tallied one tie for a record of 0–1–1. Francis' 1947 Kansas State squad was outscored 283 to 71, and was shut out on three occasions. Their closest contest was a two-point loss to New Mexico at home, and their most lopsided defeat was a 55–0 rout by rival Kansas.[4]

Head coaching record[edit]

Year Team Overall Conference Standing Bowl/playoffs
Kansas State Wildcats (Big Six Conference) (1945)
1947 Kansas State 0–10 0–5 6th
Kansas State: 0–10 0–5
Total: 0–10

Athletic honors[edit]

Francis was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame and the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame.
