The All-Gailey Team


In an old media guide, players were designated to the All-Heisman/Alexander Era Teams, All-Dodd Era Teams, and All-Post Dodd Era Teams. I personally thought it was merely pandering to the football alum during the Dodd Era because they were the big time donors at the time (in their 50's and up).

So I came up with the idea of an All-Gailey Team. Some choices are obvious, some took a little thinking. I compiled some highlights/interviews/links of all the different players, too. Without further adieu, here's my selections for the All-2002 to 2007 Football Team:

Offense
QB - Reggie Ball (2, 3)
RB - Tashard Choice (2)
RB - PJ Daniels
FB - Mike Cox
WR - Calvin Johnson (2, 3)
WR - Freddie Smith
TE - John Paul Foschi
OL - Andrew Gardner (2)
OL - Hugh Reilly
OL - Nate McManus
OL - Mansfield Wrotto
OL - Nat Dorsey

Defense
DL - Michael Johnson (2)
DL - Eric Henderson
DL - Darrell Robertson
DL - Vance Walker
DL - Darryl Richard
LB - Daryl Smith
LB - Keyaron Fox
LB - Philip Wheeler
CB - Kenny Scott (2)
CB - Reuben Houston
FS - James Butler
SS - Dawan Landry

Special Teams
K - Travis Bell
P - Durant Brooks
KR/PR - Freddie Smith
ST - Chris Reis

Honorable Mention: LB - Gary Guyton, LB - Gerris Wilkinson (2), DL - Joe Anoai, WR - Kerry Watkins

This is up to debate especially along the lines. I'm sure some would argue for Travis Parker at DT and Kamichael at LB. Both are legit. Thoughts/suggestions are welcome.
