By the time he was a junior at Chagrin Falls High School, Everett Kline was regarded as the best all around athlete in his school’s history. His athletic prowess earned him a full page dedication in the Zenith yearbook. “Kliney,” as he was called, excelled in football, basketball, and track. A 4-year varsity performer in each sport, he captained most of the teams for which he played. In 1917, at the Delaware Tournament, he was selected third forward of the All Ohio basketball team. In track, he held several county records which included the running broad jump, the running high jump, and the baseball throw. In 1919, he was presented the Silver Loving Cup by the students and teachers at CFHS for his athletic accomplishments and good sportsmanship.
