A Little History

Walter Camp is the nation’s oldest college football All-America team. Walter Camp, “The Father of Americanfootball,” first selected an All-America team in 1889. Camp – a former Yale University athlete and football coach– is also credited with developing play from scrimmage, set plays, the numerical assessment of goals and tries and the restriction of play to eleven men per side.

The Walter Camp Football Foundation – a New Haven-based all-volunteer group – was founded in 1967 to perpetuate the ideals of Camp and to continue the tradition of selecting annually an All-America team.

Typically announced in early December, the Walter Camp All-America teams are selected by the FBS head coaches and sports information directors.

•  From 1889 to 1964, eleven players were selected.

•  In 1965, both offensive and defensive teams were picked.

•  In 1972, the first punter (Ray Guy, Southern Mississippi) was honored.

•  In 1975, the first placekicker (Chris Bahr, Penn State) was selected.

•  In 1998, the first-ever Second Team All-America team was recognized.

•  In 2001, the first kick returner (Herb Haygood, Michigan State) was picked.
