All-American: Bob Harrison

Bob Harrison, C - 1958
Bob Harrison was an All-America selection in 1958. We are left to wonder if he could have won multiple honors if he hadn't played behind another All-American, Jerry Tubbs.

Everyone, including Tubbs, noticed once Harrison took over the starting center duties. "Harrison is the best center I ever saw in college. As a sophomore, he was doing everything better than I could - and asking me how to do things the right way," Tubbs said.

During 1958, Harrison was also named to the all-conference team and named Lineman of the Year by UPI. Harrison was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in 1959.
