Sports Illustrated Silver Anniversary All-America

Bob Barnett, a native of Albany, Georgia, earned All-America football honors in 1941 while captaining Duke to their second Rose Bowl appearance in four years. Although Duke lost the Rose Bowl 20-16 to Oregon State, the team did enjoy an undefeated regular season and was ranked second in the nation in scoring.

A three-year letterman and two-year starter, Barnett was named All-Southern Conference center in 1940 and 1941 and received All-America recognition in 1941. Barnett led the Blue Devils to a three-year record of 24-4 including three state championships and two Southern Conference titles.

In 1966, Barnett was named to the Sports Illustrated Silver Anniversary All-America team. He was one of 25 awardees honored for extraordinary achievement in life in the 25 years since playing their last college football game.
