William Henry "Lone Star" Dietz (1884-1964) was the head coach of the Boston Redskins (now Washington Redskins) of the National Football League.

George Preston Marshall, owner and founder of the franchise, sought to rename the Boston Braves after leaving the stadium they shared with the baseball team of the same name. He chose the name Redskins in honor of Dietz, who claimed to be part Sioux. Dietz also coached at Washington State College, including its only Rose Bowl Game win in 1916, Purdue University, and the University of Wyoming, among other schools. Dietz played at the Carlisle Indian Industrial School of Carlisle, PA, a teammate of Jim Thorpe, under famed coach Pop Warner.

Dietz's Indian heritage was first contested in 1918 by a draft agent for the U.S. Armed Forces during World War I when Dietz registered himself as a "Non-Citizen Indian," as the U.S. Government had not yet acknowledged Native Americans as U.S. citizens at that time.
