William Charles "Lou" or "Bill" Louisell (March 2, 1895 – July 2, 1957) was a college football player and coach for Mike Donahue's Auburn Tigers of Auburn University. After playing one year in the backfield, he was shifted to the line and was chosen second-string All-Southern as a member of the undefeated 1913 SIAA championship team.[1][2] He weighed 183 pounds. One writer claims "Auburn had a lot of great football teams, but there may not have been one greater than the 1913-1914 team."[3] He was an assistant on the SIAA champion 1919 team.
