Paul Lea ? 1948 ? Tackle

Paul Lea established himself as one of the top tackles in the country in 1948, earning first team All-America honors after using his 6-2, 220-pound body to pave the way for Eddie Price?s 1,178 yards rushing. Lea is Tulane?s only three-time selection to an all-league first team team as he was honored by the SEC in 1948, 1949 and 1950. During his four-year career, the New London, Texas, native and the Green Wave rolled to 24 victories. A seventh-round draft pick of the Chicago Bears, Lea played in both the Senior Bowl and the Blue-Gray All-Star Classic following his Green Wave career. He is a 1990 inductee into the T-Club Hall of Fame.
