This is the third in a series of picking players of the decades. We began with 1915-25 and the 1920s and now move to the 1925-35 period.
We consulted Chris Willis of NFL Films to make the selections.
Here they are
1925-35 co-Players of the Decade
Red Grange and Benny Friedman
Friedman was the first great passer and the first, according to researchers, to throw at least 20 touchdown passes in a season.
1925-35 Defensive Player of the Decade
Hubbard was a tackle and end on defense (and was a great blocker on offense). He was a six-time All-Pro and member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame team All-1920s Team. He was on four NFL championships teams and is a Hall of Famer.
