Dexter Wright Draper (May 23, 1881 – August 22, 1961) was an American football player and coach, as well as a pediatrician. He was an All-American tackle at the University of Pennsylvania from 1905 to 1907. Draper became head football coach at the University of Texas immediately following the resignation of W. E. Metzenthin in 1909. After compiling a 4–3–1 record, including two losses to Longhorns rival Texas A&M, Draper resigned. He later coached at Franklin & Marshall College and The College of William & Mary before entering his chosen field as a doctor in pediatrics. Draper also was the head coach for the William & Mary Tribe men's basketball team from 1913 to 1916.[1] He led the Tribe to a 15–18 record during his two-year tenure.[1] Draper's stint as the football coach from 1913–1915 produced a 1–21–2 record.[2]
