[1][2][3][4][5][6]

The College Football All-America Team is an honor given annually to the best American college football players at their respective positions. The original usage of the term All-America seems to have been to such a list selected by football pioneer Walter Camp in the 1890s. The NCAA officially recognizes All-Americans selected by the AP, UPI, AFCA, FWAA, WCFF, TSN, and FN to determine Consensus All-Americans.
