All-American: Dewey Selmon

Rufus Alexander

Dewey Selmon, NG - 1974, 1975
Dewey Selmon was named a consensus All-American in 1975 and also received the honor from The Football News in 1974. He played alongside another All-American who just happened to be his brother, Lee Roy. The two were considered the best defensive linemen in the game.

While playing on two National Championship teams in 1974 and '75, he registered triple figures in tackles, second only to his brother as the team leader. When the Selmons graduated in 1976, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers kept the two from having to compete against each other.

Tampa Bay, who had drafted Lee Roy as the first player taken, picked up Dewey in the second round.
