1913 official All-America selectors

The 1913 College Football All-America team is composed of college football players who were selected as All-Americans for the 1913 college football season. The only two selectors who have been recognized as "official" selectors by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) for the 1913 season are Walter Camp and the International News Service (INS).[1] Camp's All-America Team was published in Collier's Weekly.[2] The INS was founded in 1909 by William Randolph Hearst, and its sports editor Frank G. Menke selected the INS All-America team.[3] Other sports writers, newspapers, coaches selecting All-America teams in 1913 included Harper's Weekly, Fielding H. Yost, and Parke H. Davis.

Consensus All-Americans

In its official record book, the NCAA designates players who were selected by either Camp or INS as "consensus" All-Americans.[1] Using this criterion, the NCAA recognizes 15 as "consensus" All-Americans for the 1913 season.[1] The consensus players are identified in bold on the main list below ("All-Americans of 1913"). Camp and INS unanimously selected the following seven players as All-Americans:

All-Americans of 1913
