Big Line, Sparklig Backs in Top Team

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-A giant line aver-
aging 2321/2 pounds to the manband
one of the most brilliant back-
fields of recent years feature the
1961 Associated Press All-America
Football Team announced yester-
day.
In the backfield are Sandy Ste-
phens, Minnesota; Ernie Davis,;
Syracuse; James Saxton, Texas;
and Bob Ferguson, Ohio State.
Merlin Olsen of Utah State at
265, playing tackle, is the biggest
member of the forward wall that
includes Jerry Hillebrand, Colo-
rado, and Bill Miller, Miami of

Florida, ends; Bill Neighbors, A
bama, taaJkle; Roy Winston, La
siana State and Dave Behrm
Michigan State, guards; and A
Kroll, Rutgers, center.
Ferguson, meeting the toug
est kind of competition in1
Big Ten, made 938 yards in
carries for a 46 average, a
scored 11 touchdowns. "The b
fullback I ever coached, a r
good blocker, a team leader, a
an inspirational leader," says
coach, Woody Hayes.
Davis, first Negro ever to v
the Heisman trophy, broke1

record for total offense at Syra-
cuse with 3,414 yards as against
3,225 for Brown and scored 220
points in three years to Brown's

the Saxton, who runs like a water-
202 bug in spectacular spurts, made'
and 846 yards in 107 carries and was
)est termed by Coach Darrel Royal as
eal "the quickest athlete I've ever
and known." As one opponent said:
his "If you miss him the first time
he comes by it's foolish to chase
win him. In the first place, you can't
the catch him, and in the second, if
eer you just stay there where you are,
he may come by again.,
If Saxton furnishes the fire-
works, Stephens provides the calm
leadership. Termed by Coach
Murray Warmath, "the best two
way quarterback in the country,"
Stephens gets most of the credit
for sending Minnesota to the Rose
Bowl. His big day was in Minne-
sota's 23-20 victory over Michigan
when he set a school record for

offense with 304 yards, including
a 63 yards touchdown run, and a
46 yard touchdown pass and then
at game's end kiiocked down one
pass with the receiver in the clear
near the goal, and finally inter-
cepted a pass on his two.
The small man on the forward
wall is Miller-192 pounds and
6-2. He makes up in agility and
drive for what he lacks in power.
This season he caught 43 passes
for 640 yards and two touchdowns,
and in his career he snagged 102
for 1,448 and eight touchdowns,
all Miami records.
McRae-Third Team
Bennie McRae carried the hon-
ors on the third team, in a back-
field with Arizona's Eddie Wilson,
the versatile John Hadl of Kan-
sas, and Iowa State's Dave Hopp-
mann.
Michigan end and captain,
George Mans and Detroit's Larry
Vargo were given honorable men-
tion.
