Football

Fred Biletnikoff collected many accolades throughout his career as a wide receiver — at Florida State, and in the NFL. The four-time All-Pro won Super Bowl MVP, and led the NFL in receptions in 1971. Perhaps one of his greatest moments, however, came during his time with the Garnet & Gold in 1964. His four-touchdown performance against Oklahoma comes in at No. 63 on our top-100 plays in FSU football history.

Recruiting

Coverage and roster for Florida State recruits at The Opening finals in Dallas has been updated.

In case you missed it, the Seminoles made the top five for the No. one recruit in the nation, Kayvon Thibodeaux. Most believe that FSU is one of the top two teams expected to land him.

Here’s the five-star defensive end Thibodeaux taking on a four-star offensive tackle.

Alumni

Former ’Nole Derwin James just gave the gift of a lifetime to one of the most valuable and influential figures in his lifetime.

Other Sports

One website has Florida State baseball as an early favorite to make it to Omaha in head coach Mike Martin’s final season at the helm.
