William F. Etter (born February 18, 1950) is a former American football quarterback. He was an All-American at Lewis & Clark High School in Spokane; a two-game starter for the University of Notre Dame until a knee injury ended his college career; and a three-year backup for the CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats, from 1973-1975.[1][2] He is currently a commercial and personal injury defense lawyer in Spokane.
