Rashad Greene now Florida State's career leader in receptions

Greene continues to ascend the FSU record books.

Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

Rashad Greene continues to make his case as one of the best receivers in Florida State history, as he has just passed Ron Sellers for the most catches in Florida State history, with his 213th. He ended the day with six catches, giving him 215 for his career.

And other major records are still in reach for Greene, as well. He began the day only 557 yards behind Sellers for the all-time receiving record of 3598.

And the all-time touchdowns record of 31, held by Peter Warrick, is also within reach if Greene stays healthy.

Historical note: Of course, it should be noted that Sellers' records are from a time in which far fewer games were played each season, and stats from bowl games did not count. Sellers amassed his numbers in only 31 games. He was considerably more dominant than Greene and really any other FSU receiver on this list on a per-game basis. By contrast, the Syracuse contest was Greene's 43rd career game at Florida State. The great Peter Warrick did it in 43.
