1913 College Football All-Southern Team

The 1913 College Football All-Southern Team consists of American football players selected to the College Football All-Southern Teams selected by various organizations for the 1913 Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association football season.


The Auburn Tigers won the SIAA.

Composite eleven

The composite All-Southern eleven formed by the selection of 18 sporting writers culled by the Atlanta Constitution included:

  • Enoch Brown, end and captain for Vanderbilt, unanimous selection. Known as "Nuck," he was also a Rhodes Scholar.
  • Tom Brown, tackle for Vanderbilt, unanimous selection. He played professional football with the Toledo Maroons and was later a prominent physician of Toledo. "He had no peers in his orthopedic ability and contributed greatly to Toledo medicine."
  • Red Harris, fullback for Auburn. One writer describes his featured role in the offense: "Coach Donahue loved the fullback dive and would run the play over and over again before sending the elusive Newell wide on a sweep."
  • R. N. MacCallum, guard for Sewanee. MacCallum was later a reverend serving several parishes.
  • Bob McWhorter, halfback for Georgia. He was the school's first All-American, inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1954. Sportswriter Dick Jemison said "When you mention football to an Athens fan its definition is Bob McWhorter, and vice-versa." He was selected for the Associated Press Southeast Area All-Time football team 1869-1919 era. McWhorter later had a lengthy law career.
  • Kirk Newell, halfback and captain for Auburn. Newell gained 1,707 yards that year, 46% of the team's entire offensive output; and 5,800 yards rushing, 350 yards receiving, and 1,200 yards on punt returns for his career.
  • David Paddock, quarterback for Georgia. He is the only player in school history to have a petition circulated by the student body requesting that he play for the Bulldogs.
  • Boozer Pitts, center for Auburn. He later coached and was once professor of mathematics at Auburn.
  • Robbie Robinson, end for Auburn. Robinson is selected at the end position for several all-time Auburn teams.
  • Big Thigpen, guard for Auburn, unanimous selection. The Atlanta Constitution claimed he "rated as good as, if not better than, any guard in the south."
  • Paul Turner, tackle for Georgia. His defensive work in the rivalry game against Georgia Tech was cited as helping the Bulldogs on the way to a 14–0 victory.
