  • Walter Eckersall, a three-time All-American football player from 1904 to 1906 Robert Peck selected in 1914, 1915 and 1916.

  • by Rick Fizdale fizdale@aol.com When I was 10 years old Doak Walker became a three All-American and I asked myself the same question you posed, “Have there been any others?” Shortly after that I began collecting NCAA guides which in those days contained a list of every football player who made at least one official (as determined by the NCAA) All-American team. I made a list of every three time All-American. There were many besides Doak Walker. There were even some four timers. I continued this pursuit for decades. The following list contains every player whose brilliance and consistency led to their being chosen All-America three or more years. I’ve included their school, positon, height, weight and years selected. Compared to the original answer many names have been added and two players are missing, Tom Sladany, the great Ohio State punter, and Sean Brewer, a tight end from San Jose State. According to the NCAA Skladany was an AA in 1974 & ‘75. No doubt he was selected by somebody in 1973, his sophomore season. But it does not appear to be a team sanctioned by the NCAA. As for Brewer he only played Division One football for two years, 2002-03, and never made an All-American team.
