1899 College Football All-America Team

The 1899 College Football All-America team is composed of college football players who were selected as All-Americans by various organizations and writers that chose College Football All-America Teams for the 1899 college football season. The organizations that chose the teams included Walter Camp for Collier's Weekly and Caspar Whitney for Outing Magazine.

Of the 13 players recognized as consensus All-Americans for the 1899 season, 12 played for the four Ivy League teams that were known as the "Big Four" of college football—Harvard, Princeton, Yale and Penn. The sole exception was Isaac Seneca, a Native American who played at the fullback position for the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Seneca won acclaim after leading Carlisle to a 42–0 victory over Columbia in a Thanksgiving Day game in Manhattan and a 2–0 victory over the University of California on Christmas Day in San Francisco.

The following players were selected as first-team All-Americans by at least four of the seven selectors: end Dave Campbell of Harvard (6), guard Truxtun Hare of Penn (6), end Art Poe of Princeton (5), tackle Art Hillebrand of Princeton (5), guard Gordon Brown of Yale (5), center Pete Overfield of Penn (4), and quarterback Charles Dudley Daly of Harvard (4).
