History & Tradition: The All-Time Team

The 1940 Alumni Poll

In 1940, the Georgetown University Alumni Association commissioned a poll of its members to name an all-time team for the first 60 years of the sport at Georgetown.

The results are posted below; while no such survey has been attempted since (and the knowledge of alumni towards contemporary football remains limited), the 1940 poll reflects a proud tradition in the sport at that time, one which remains valuable in the intervening years. Not surprisingly, each of the first and second teamers were eventually elected to the Georgetown Athletic Hall of Fame.

(Note there are only 11 men per team--this was the era of single platoon football and so the 11 on offense were the same 11 on defense.)
