The College Football All-America Team is an honor given annually to the best American college football players at their respective positions. The original usage of the term All-America seems to have been to the 1889 College Football All-America Team selected by Caspar Whitney and published in This Week's Sports in association with football pioneer Walter Camp.

Camp took over the responsibility for picking the All-America team and was recognized as the official selector in the early years of the 20th century.
