Elmer Madar, Michigan's, 172-

Johnny Lujack were tabbed for
all-American honors almost be-

Lujack's dual with Army's Ar-

quarterbacking honors failed to
live up to promise. The West Point
signal-caller had to settle for
third team honors behind Lujack
and Indiana's second team quar-
terback, Ben Raimondi.
Trippi Led Unbeaten Georgia
The fourth man mn the AP's
backfield is Charlie Trippi of.
Georgia. One of the top ground-
gainers in the nation, Trippi
snapped back from a bad year
in 1945 to lead his Bulldogs to an
undefeated sepasnAainsy Ala-

Rounding out the AP's first
team selections were: Burr Bald-
win ULA ed;Dik Hffmn

Georgia Tech, center. All told the
Midwest placed four men on the
team, the South three, the East
two and the Far West and South-
west one each.
Six Wolverines were accorded
honorable mention by the AP edi-
tors. They were tackles Jack Car-

George Kraeger and'Dom Tomasi;
and backs Bob Chappuis and Bob

received spots on either the sec-
ond or third teams.
Eight men who were accorded
AP all-American honors in previ-

Notable among the non-repeaters
were Bob Fennimore of Okla-

STEP rirnt this way, Mr. Sports i
Reader, that all-American 1
craze has once again hit our dizzy
sports woad. Each fall about this
time the nation's sports scribes,
grid coaches and grandstand
quarterbae!,s lut their heads to-
gether andl cozn up with the last
word in the football Who's Who.
Today we present you with the
1946 Associated Press all-Ameri--
can football team (fanfare) just
as it was received by us nearly
two weeks ago. That's right, the
AP team was selected and in the
mail before the Ohio State-
Michigan, Illinois -Northwest-
ern, Georgia-Georgia Tech, No-
tre Dame-Southern California
and Army-Navy games, to men-
tion but 4 few of the big games.
Of course, these few games
wouldn't have made much differ-
ence anyway. But since we're
jumping ahead we might as well
scoop the nation with our super-
terrific 1947 backfield nomina-
tions. At quarter we've got John-
ny Lujack of Notre Dame. He

date for all-American, we've got
a kid brother who should be ter-

he's only nine now but it'll sim-
plify matters to get the ball roll-
ing a little early. And maybe,
we'll even squeeze him into the
1955 all--American line-up.
