     In the classroom and on the football field, Johnny Musso was an All-American. He was named First Team All-America as a junior and consensus All-America as a senior. He finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting in 1971 and was named Player of the Year by Football News, the Touchdown Club of Atlanta, and the Miami Touchdown Club. Nobody could touch Musso in the Southeastern Conference, as he twice led the conference in rushing, gaining 1,137 yards in 1970 and 1,088 yards in 1971. He was an all-conference selection in 1970 and 1971, and led the conference in scoring in 1971 with 100 points. He was awarded the American Football Coaches Association Ernie Davis Award in 1972.

      Musso currently ranks second in Alabama school history with 34 career rushing touchdowns and third with 2,741 yards rushing. He held the touchdown mark for 27 years before Shaun Alexander broke it last season. He is a member of the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame.

      Academically, Musso was named all-conference three times
and All-America twice; and, after his senior season, he was honored as a National Football Foundation National Scholar-Athlete. He went on to play professional football in Canada and later with the Chicago Bears. Currently the owner and president of Schreiner-Musso Trading Company, Musso resides in Hinsdale, Illinois.
