As the countdown hits 57 days until FSU opening kickoff, the No. 57 is the spotlight for today. As always, don't forget to vote for who you think is the greatest No. 57 in Florida State history.

Nose guard John Nance wore the No. 57 from 1990-1993, his final four years on campus. In 1993, the first national championship winning team in school history, Nance was named to the third team All-ACC following the year. The Florida native played at least six games each of the five years he was a part of the Florida State football squad.

Another national champion, center Eric Thomas, was named to the second team All-ACC following the 1999 national championship season. He wore No. 57 five years from 1995-1999 and was a pivotal player throughout that 1999 season, winning ACC lineman of the week in a huge 41-35 victory over No. 10 Georgia Tech.
