Alvord Wolff (born c. 1918) was an American football player who played for Santa Clara University was selected as a consensus All-American at the tackle position in 1938. He was selected in the third round (16th pick overall) of the 1939 NFL Draft by the Chicago Cardinals. He was an all-city football player at Mission High School in San Francisco. In announcing the NEA All-American team in 1939, sports editor Harry Grayson wrote the following about Wolff:
"Fast for all his 220 pounds, Wolff got downfield to nail punt receivers ... intercepted and broke up forward passes. In the Sugar Bowl game of a year ago, he twice broke through to stop ball-carriers. Wolff was a vicious tackler. Little yardage was made over him. He clicked in opening holes for his backfielders. He is only 20 years old and graceful for his size. In his three years he lost little time because of injuries. He is as smart in his classes as he was on the football field."
