Florida State Football All-Jimbo Fisher Team: Fullback

Joel Auerbach

Tomahawk Nation readers are voting on the All-Jimbo Fisher Team (Florida State edition). To be eligible, a player must have played for head coach Jimbo Fisher (2010-2013). The qualifications are completely up to you. Do you value overall numbers, or fleeting greatness?

Thursday, we're picking a fullback. There are only two legit choices, and I am sort of expecting a blot out here. Voting closes at 5:30 EST.

Lonnie Pryor

Pryor had a great career for Florida State, and had many memorable plays, including the long catch against Clemson in 2009 and the touchdown that broke open the 2010 game at Miami.

Versatile and productive senior fullback who was a mainstay in the lineup for four outstanding blocker who played a key role in FSU's resurgent running game, which averaged 205.9 yards a game and produced a single-season record 40 rushing touchdowns...a fixture in FSU's two-back sets, he played in all 14 games and earned eight starts in 2012...had a career night in the Orange Bowl in his final game for Florida State finishing with career-highs in yards (134) on five carries, longest run (60) and tied a career-high with three receptions...named the Orange Bowl MVP as three of the four longest runs of his career came in the game including touchdown runs of 60 yards and 37 yards...opened the year with a career-best, three-touchdown performance in FSU's win over Murray State...led all running backs averaging 8.0 yards per carry as he finished the season rushing for 376 yards on 47 carries with eight touchdowns, while adding 13 receptions for 117 yards...major contributor to an FSU offense in 2012 which will go down in school history as the most productive ever racking up a school record 6,591 yards which surpassed the 2000 team for the most yards...capped off his career leading FSU to 534 yards of total offense which was the sixth game of over 500 yards of total offense in 2012registered a single-game career-high seven carries at USF...had a rushing touchdown in the win over No. 10 Clemson and two against Boston College...scored 23 career touchdowns - 18 rushing and five receiving...his 41 career receptions leads all active running backs... named one of four team captains...recipient of the Attitude Award on offense and Offensive Warrior award given by the strength and conditioning staff at the team's annual banquet.

Chad Abram

Abram started for just a single year, but he proved to be quite good, and caught a touchdown in Florida State's National Championship win over Auburn.

Bulldozing fullback who played one year as a starter...helped FSU tally 2,844 yards rushing at an impressive 5.6 ypc rate with his hard-hitting blocking...Noles had school record 42 rushing touchdowns...had only seven carries for 29 yards (4.1 ypc), but was a threat as a receiver out of the backfield...had nine receptions for 73 yards and had three touchdowns...caught an 11-yard touchdown in the BCS National Championship game to bring the Seminoles within a point of Auburn in the fourth quarter...scored his first career touchdown on a 10-yard grab at Boston College...caught a nine-yard pass against Miami...recorded his second touchdown on a two-yard reception at Wake Forest and added a career-best 16-yard reception in the third quarter...Had two receptions in a game three times...Started career as a safety before moving to fullback in 2011...Started his first career game in the season-opener against Pitt.

And the winner is...

With 94 percent of the vote, Lonnie Pryor is your runaway winner!
