In 2013, North Texas football celebrated its 100th anniversary. As part of the centennial festivites, Mean Green fans were asked to select the North Texas All-Century Football Team.
To fill the 28 roster spots, more than 120 players and coaches were named as finalists – a list that was compiled with the help of Mean Green letterwinners and Hall of Fame members. Fans then voted on the team, submitting more than 11,000 votes. A final selection committee, made up of long-time Mean Green football observers, media, and members of the athletic department, then met to determine the final roster.
