Composite eleven

The composite eleven posted by H. J. Stegeman, coach at the University of Georgia, for Spalding's Football Guide included:

  • Alf Adams, end for Vanderbilt, also a basketball star and later an attorney.
  • Pete Bonner, guard for Auburn, selected for various all-time Auburn teams.
  • Josh Cody, tackle for Vanderbilt, inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1970, only three-time All-American in Vanderbilt football history. He was selected for the Associated Press Southeast Area All-Time football team 1869-1919 era. Third-team Camp All-American. Later a prominent football coach at many institutions.
