The Football Writers Association of America released its 75th Anniversary team Thursday and the list is loaded with talent that has graced the stage of college football since the organization formed in 1941.
Here's the full selections made by the association:
The FWAA has a few interesting choices which will surely cause some debate among college football fans, but choosing 75 players over the course of 75 years is no easy task.
The position most likely to stir up debate is the running backs. There is little-to-no argument about whether all six players deserve to be mentioned since each player has won the Heisman and is considered some of the best players of all-time. However, the debate on the order will depend on the fans of each player and team.
Another popular debate will probably surround the quarterback position, mainly the decision to name Tim Tebow as second-team QB.
Other notable selections for the first-team include Jerry Rice--the only FCS player named to the team-- and on the defensive side Deion Sanders, Mike Singletary and Charles Woodson. Pittsburgh wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Nebraska defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh are the only two first-team selections to have played in the 21st century.
Overall, 41 different schools are represented on the three teams. Nebraska had the most players selected with six All-Americans while Ohio State and Pittsburgh weren't far behind with five selections each.
