IN the days of Walter Camp, when most good football players went to Yale, Harvard or Princeton, it was a simple matter to pick one generally accepted All-America team. Now so many men from so many schools are touted as champs that picking All-Americas has become as common a year-end pastime as kissing under the mistletoe. The consensus this year:

Backs: Johnny Majors, Tennessee; Paul Hornung, Notre Dame; Tom McDonald, Oklahoma; Jim Brown, Syracuse.

Ends: Joe Walton, Pittsburgh; Ron Kramer, Michigan.

Tackles: John Witte, Oregon State; Alex Karras, Iowa.

Guards: Jim Parker, Ohio State; Bill Glass, Baylor.

Center: Jerry Tubbs, Oklahoma.
