Class of 1947
Football/Track and Field

A three-time First Team All-American (1944-46), Felix "Doc" Blanchard, "Mr. Inside," teamed with Glenn Davis, "Mr. Outside," to form one of the most heralded backfields in college football history. Blanchard became the first junior to win the Heisman Trophy (1945) and the first football player to win the Sullivan Award (1945).

Named "Outstanding Player of the Year" by both the Maxwell Club and Walter Camp Foundation in 1945, Blanchard starred on three national championship teams (1944-46). He graduated in second place on Army's career rushing list and finished with 38 career touchdowns.

Blanchard was inducted into the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame in 1959 and was presented with the Doak Walker Legends Award this spring.
