Edwin Beswick "Ted" Shultz (November 24, 1893 – ?) was a college football player and coach.


Early years

Edwin Beswick "Ted" Shultz was born on November 24, 1893 in Logansport, Indiana to Dr. John Beswick Shultz and Anna L. Cooper. He attended Logansport High School.


Shultz was a prominent All-American tackle for the Washington & Lee Generals of Washington & Lee University from 1912 to 1915. He was renowned for his size at the time, somewhere between 6 feet 2 inches and 6 feet 4 inches.


Shultz was the only freshman to make the varsity this season. Shultz and captain Buck Miles were the tackles, a duo which "scintillated."


Shultz was a member of the undefeated SAIAA champion 1914 team, which secured a share of the title when it finished the season with a victory over North Carolina A & M. The team included College Football Hall of Fame inductee Harry "Cy" Young.

An account of the 10 to 0 victory over Swarthmore that year reads "Left tackle Ted Shultz starred for the victors making long gains on forward passes and effecting tackles that checked Swarthmore."


He was captain of W&L's 1915 team.


Shultz also played on the basketball team.


Shultz was once a secretary for the YMCA in Denver, Colorado, and coached the freshman team of the University of Denver.
