Tulane Football All-Americans
Eddie Price ? 1949 ? Back

All-American Eddie Price was a man of firsts during his days as a Tulane running back. He became the first Green Wave player to rush for more than 200 yards in a game, the first Tulanian to rush for 1,000 yards in a season and the first player in NCAA history to surpass 3,000 yards for his career. Price finished his career with 3,095 yards, still a Tulane record. His 1,178 yards in 1948 was the Green Wave standard until Mewelde Moore broke the mark in 2001. Price went on to play six seasons for the New York Giants. Price was inducted into the National Football Foundation Hall of Fame in 1982 and is also a member of the Louisiana, Greater New Orleans and Tulane sports halls. He was a charter inductee into the Tulane Athletic Hall of Fame in 1977. He died in 1979.
