1933 College Football All-America Team
The 1933 College Football All-America team is composed of college football players who were selected as All-Americans by various organizations and writers that chose College Football All-America Teams in 1933. The eight selectors recognized by the NCAA as "official" for the 1933 season are (1) the All-America Board, (2) the Associated Press (AP), (3) Collier's Weekly, as selected by Grantland Rice, (4) the International News Service (INS), (5) Liberty magazine, (6) the Newspaper Enterprise Association (NEA), (7) the North American Newspaper Alliance (NANA), and the United Press (UP). The only unanimous selections were center Chuck Bernard of Michigan and quarterback Cotton Warburton of USC.
