Bill Kidd was one of the finest high school coaches in America. The players who played for him remember him with great respect and deep appreciation. When asked who was his favorite player, Coach Kidd responded, "I cannot have a favorite, for I loved them all." His illustrious career included two undefeated seasons. He was a director of the Ohio High School Football Coaching Association, and its president in 1956; head coach of the South All Star Team in 1954, an elected member of the Ohio High School Football Coaches Hall of Fame, and the Varsity "C" Hall of Fame at Capital University. Bill was a leader in the community and remained its fan until he died. Coach Kidd is a gallant inspiration in the hearts of all who played for him and will always be greatly missed. This tribute honors his distinguished memory.
