Hall of Fame Class:
1999


A native of Lamar, Mo., Hatfield starred at MU in three sports, then went on to a long and distinguished career as a high school coach and athletic administrator. As a halfback and kicker on the Mizzou football team, he picked up the nickname "Iron Man" from Big Six Conference sportswriters. He seldom left the field, playing halfback on offense and linebacker on defense, and was the Tigers' regular punter and placekicker for three years. As a senior he was the team's most valuable player and an all-Big Six selection. Hatfield lettered in basketball and track as a junior and senior. He held the school record in the 100-yard dash - 9.6 seconds - for many years. Following graduation, he coached football for two years at Lamar, then 12 at Columbia Hickman, before moving to St. Louis. From 1947 until his retirement in 1978, he worked in the St. Louis Public School System. He coached at Soldan High School and was the manager of the St. Louis Public High League. Currently lives in Webster Groves.
