Lynn Bomar
First Team All-American
Walter Camp

A devastating blocker and outstanding runner, Bomar was the first great end of the Dan McGugin Era.

Bomar was named All-America by Walter Camp.

Known to fans as the “Blonde Bear,” Bomar helped Vanderbilt to “the Championship of the South.” His athletic career ended in 1924 when he suffered a brain hemorrhage following a blow to the chin. Though temporarily in danger, he fully recovered and enjoyed a distinguished law enforcement career.

He was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame in 1956.
