Ryan Green has had an up-and-down career at Florida State, switching positions two different times (from running back to corner back to running back) in an effort to break through and find a spot to contribute.

But on Saturday he left it all on the field, racking up 96 yards and three touchdowns during FSU’s 77-6 victory over Delaware State.

The senior matched nearly 60 percent of his season-high in total yards (163 yards in 2013) and doubled his career touchdown total in just seven attempts vs. the Hornets.

Green’s first score came from a five-yard run to cap off a 44-yard drive, and his second an impressive 50-yard burst that saw him speed through defenders and shake off a would-be tackler at the 10-yard line to finish off the score.

What made the game even more special was the fact it was Senior Day at Florida State. Green and his fellow seniors were honored prior to the game.

“It felt great,” Green said following the game. “It’s been awhile since I’ve been in the end zone, and it was a great feeling to have, especially on Senior Day with my friends and family watching me.”
