Edward Scharer (January 26, 1902 – May 5, 1989) was a professional football player from Toledo, Ohio. He attended and played his college football at the University of Notre Dame and University of Detroit Mercy. While at Notre Dame, Scharer caused a rift between the college's president, Father Charles L. O'Donnell and Knute Rockne. In 1925 O'Donnell expelled Scharer from Notre Dame, for "breaches of discipline". This led to a protest by Scharer's sponsor, Bill Hayes, a contractor from Saint Louis. Rockne then argued on Scharer's behalf for months to O'Donnell. Finally Scharer was allowed to play for the 1925 season.
