Portraits of Greatness

The D3football.com All-Decade team of the 2000s encompasses the years 2000-2009. To be eligible, a player had to finish in that span or play the majority of his career then, three seasons.

Any player who met those criteria was considered on the basis of his full career, whether he started playing in 1997, such as R.J. Bowers of Grove City, or finished in 2010, such as Cecil Shorts of Mount Union.
