Walter Gould[1] Hargesheimer (August 10, 1912 – May 18, 1996) was an American football player and coach of football and basketball. He served as the head football coach at Sioux Falls College, now the University of Sioux Falls, from 1935 to 1936 and at Massachusetts State College, now the University of Massachusetts Amherst, from 1941 to 1942 and again in 1946.

Hargesheimer played football at the University of Minnesota, from which he graduated in 1934, as a back for the Golden Gophers in 1932 and 1933. After coaching football at Sioux Falls College in 1935 and 1936, he was the backfield coach and varsity basketball coach at Oberlin College from 1937 to 1940. He then coached football, basketball, and track at Highland Park High School in Highland Park, Illinois, before taking the appointment of head football coach and Professor of Physical Education at Massachusetts State College in January 1941.[2]
