Butch Cook was a forward who played for the US team at the 1952 Olympics. He played club soccer for St. Louis Kutis SC during the mid-1950s, helping them win the 1957 National Challenge Cup. In qualifying for the 1958 FIFA World Cup, the US Soccer Federation selected Kutis to represent the US after two very poor performances by the US team, which Cook played on. Cook thus eventually played in four qualifying matches for the US as a member of Kutis, but the team did not qualify for the World Cup. He is a member of the St. Louis Soccer Hall of Fame.
