Famed sportswriter Grantland Rice once called Doak Walker the most authentic all-around player in football history. Walker was a three-time consensus All-America running back at SMU from 1947-1949. He led the Mustangs to Southwest Conference Championships in 1947 and 1948. A versatile athlete who excelled at a number of positions, he was only a junior when he was awarded the Heisman Trophy in 1948 as college football's best player. His NFL resume includes six seasons with the Detroit Lions from 1950-1955, 2 World Championships (1952, 1953), four All-Pro Awards, and Rookie of the Year honors in 1950 after he led the league in scoring. He was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1959.
