#12 Rags Matthews

I have to admit, I don't know a whole lot about Rags, seeing as how be played a decade before the likes of Sammy Baugh and Davey O'Brien, but here goes. Rags was a force to be reckoned with on the D-line. An intimidating six foot frame packed with 176 pounds of badass Matthews was the first SWC player selected to play in the East-West Shrine game and in 1969 Matthews was inducted in to the college football hall of fame. The Fort Worth native was elected the teams most valuable player in 1926 and 1927 and in 1927 Matthews became TCU's first ever AP all-American.
