The 1914 College Football All-America team consists of American football players selected to the College Football All-America Teams selected by various organizations in 1914. The organizations that chose the teams included Collier's Weekly selected by Walter Camp.
The Los Angeles Times reported that "Maulbetsch, Michigan's hero, is about the only one of 1914's stars who received an almost unanimous vote."[1]


Harvard end Huntington Hardwick was the only player who was unanimously selected as a first-team All-American by all 27 selectors identified below. Other players selected as a first-team All-American by a majority of the selectors were Harvard halfback Eddie Mahan (26 selections), Harvard guard Stan Pennock (26 selections), Princeton tackle Harold Ballin (22 selections), Michigan halfback John Maulbetsch (20 selections), Cornell quarterback Charley Barrett (19 selections), and Dartmouth guard Clarence Spears (16 selections).
