The "Four Horsemen" of Tuskegee

The "Four Horsemen" backfield of Tuskegee (circa 1925) featured, from left: "Big Ben" Stevenson (RB), William Stewart (RB), Ernest Bailey (FB) and Paul Smith (QB), circa 1925. Selected to seven consecutive Black College All-America teams by the Pittsburgh Courier, Stevenson was the first Black college superstar and led the Golden Tigers to instant success. In 1924, he led the team to a 9-0 record and the school's first Black National Championship. In 1925, Tuskegee outscored their opponents 224-6 for their second straight perfect season and another national title. In all, Stevenson led the school to six Black National Championships and a remarkable 69-2-9 record in eight seasons.

Thank you for your generous support!
