Doak Walker

1952 Bowman Large

Ewell Doak Walker, Jr. (January 1, 1927 - September 27, 1998) (HB/K/P) was a highly successful college football player at Southern Methodist University, playing multiple positions on defense and offense. A virtual jack-of-all-trades, Walker was a running back, defensive back, and punted, passed and placekicked. The three-time All-American won the 1947 Maxwell Award honoring the best football player in the nation, and won the 1948 Heisman Trophy. He was twice named the Cotton Bowl MVP in 1948 and 1949 as SMU tied Penn State 13-13 and defeated Oregon 21-13, respectively. The Detroit Lions selected Walker with the third overall pick in the 1949 NFL Draft. Fresh off his 1949 Cotton Bowl MVP game, Doak captured the 1950 NFL Rookie of the Year Award and led the NFL in scoring with 128 points on 11 touchdowns, eight field goals and 38 extra points. Walker only played six seasons in the NFL with the Lions (1950-1955), but was a leader during Detroit’s most successful era as they played for the three-consecutive NFL League Championship (1952-1954) capturing titles in 1952 and 1953. He led the league twice in scoring, twice in extra points and twice in field goals made. Doak was named to five consecutive NFL Pro Bowls appearances (1950-1955) and four consecutive NFL All-Pro First Teams. Doak Walker finished his career with 534 points on 34 all-purpose touchdowns, 183 extra points mad and 49 field goals made. He also amassed 4,059 all-purpose yards with 1,520 rushing yards, 2,539 receiving yards, 284 punt return yards and 968 kick return yards. College football’s Doak Walker Award is awarded each year to the nation’s top running back. Doak Walker was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1986 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 1959.
