All-Stars 1955

  Previous Index Next  

The Various All-Star Teams in 1955 were as follows:

The Big Four / IRFU and the WIFU / West picked both offensive and defensive squads, the ORFU and Reeves picked only a single 12 player squad.  The All-East team had first and second teams rather than separate offensive and defensive teams, though several of hte players on the second team appeared to be chosen for their defensive play.  A notable case in point is Hal Patterson as a second team halfback - Patterson was a farmous offensive end, but played defensive back as well in this t wo way era.  Ted Reeves tended to pick seven lineman, not caring much about position, so you have two centers in Tom Hugo and Bob Dean and there is only one true end in Red O'Quinn. That is why the chart below shows LM (lineman) for seven positions - these are for the Reeves team and the regular positions are for the other all-star squads.  There was also some inconsistency in the picking of the flying wing position.  The West tended to just pick four halfbacks, so the slot after QB is marked FW / HB.  Leo Lewis was not a flying wing, but one of the four hafbacks picked. For the Big Four and West, if only one player is listed, he was both the division and palyed in the Shrine game.  Players marked with a + were added for the Shrine game only due to players not being available or so a player who was both an all-star on offence and defence didn't have to play both ways.  For example, Kent Burris was a West All-Star at both center and linebacker, so Mel Beckett was added at center.
