Arthur August Schabinger (August 6, 1889 – October 13, 1972) was an American football and basketball coach, and then later administrator. Schabinger is credited (although disputed) with throwing the first forward pass in college football history.[1] Even if it was not the first forward pass, most certainly Schabinger was one of the early adopters and innovators of the play.

Basketball achievements[edit]

Schabinger coached college basketball for 20 seasons, including stints with Ottawa University, Emporia Teachers College and Creighton University.[1] He was one of the founders of National Association of Basketball Coaches and the president of that organization in 1932. He authored the association's Constitution and By-Laws. He was enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame as a contributor in 1961.[2]

Football achievements[edit]

As a player[edit]

In 1910, Schabinger led the College of Emporia Presbies to a 17-0 victory over Washburn University. During this game, he threw what some have credited (but many other records disputed) to be the first forward pass in college football history. That same year, "Schabie" scored seven touchdowns in a 107-0 win over Pittsburg Normal.[3]

Schabinger's mentor and coach at the College of Emporia was Bill Hargiss.[4]

As a coach[edit]

Schabinger was the eighth head college football coach for the Ottawa University Braves located in Ottawa, Kansas and he held that position for four seasons, from 1915 until 1919. His career coaching record at Ottawa was 9 wins, 17 losses, and 6 ties. This ranks him 18th at Ottawa in total wins and 23rd at Ottawa in winning percentage (0.281).[5]
