Ted Coy


Edwin Harris Coy

Inducted 1951

Date of Birth



Andover, MA


Yale University (1907-1909)


It was always exciting for Yale fans when Edwin "Ted" Coy got his hands on a football. The 6-0, 195-pound Eli fullback played in only one losing game during three varsity seasons. He was known for his abilities to lead the Bulldogs in come-from-behind victories. It was a familiar sight when Ted would burst through an enemy defense, his long blonde hair held back by a white sweatband. Coy was a pressure player who always seemed to come up with the big play. In 1907, he helped Yale post a 9-0-1 record which was blemished only by a scoreless tie with Army. The next season, Coy repeated as a All-America as the Bulldogs finished with a 7-1-1 mark. That season he experienced his only collegiate loss, a 4-0 heartbreaker to Harvard in the final game of the year. As a senior, Coy captained the Yale club through one of the greatest seasons in school history. The Bulldogs finished 10-0-0 and ran off 209 points while holding every opponent scoreless. The three-time consensus All-America led the Bulldogs to two national titles and was Yale football coach in 1910, when the team had a 6-2-2 record. In later years he held positions with Wall Street firms and wrote football articles for the numerous publications.
