Shidler football dates back to the early forties, but because of a death on the field, the sport was dropped until 1946. Roy Rousey coached the first football team Shidler had after a death. The team was inexperienced and only won two games and tied one game that year. Their best game was with A.M.A., which they won 19-0.

In 1948 Coach Art Fleak took over, pushing the Tigers to a 8-2 year, the best Shidler ever had. We played Cleveland for District championship, and Cleveland came out ahead by five points. Charles Yeager, Kenneth Ross, Charles Roe, and Ray Zink were chosen for honorable mention All-State.

In 1950 Coach Art Fleak led the Tigers to 6-5 year. Gayle Davis was chosen All-State, the first to ever come out of Shidler High School.

Names on the All District list were taken from yearbooks that were available to the Alumni Association. Some years are incomplete.
