We’ve had a lot of fun this summer debating the best FSU football players to wear a jersey number in each group of 10, and it’s now time to make your votes official. Included below are the champion and runner-up from each number slot— you can click on the entries to view the exact percentages achieved by each Seminole; you may be surprised by some of these totals, one of which was determined by fewer than 10 votes:
1st Place: No. 90, DE Derrick Alexander
2nd Place: No. 95, DE Bjoern Werner
1st Place: No. 80, WR Rashad Greene
2nd Place: No. 85, DE Andre Wadsworth
1st Place: No. 76, OT Walter Jones
2nd Place: No. 75, OL Cameron Erving

Alright, I know you must have issues with some of these outcomes. So let’s hear them in the comments. Which players got the shaft? Which votes should have been closer? Which Seminoles were over — and under — appreciated? Your comments could very well determine a future poll. Until then, I’d like to sincerely thank all of you who’ve been stalwart respondents and contributors to this series.
While this poll was not nearly as exhaustive as last summer’s number-by-number voting, it was certainly derived therefrom. I’ve taken a great deal of satisfaction in compiling this series, and even more pleasure in watching y'all respond with your varied and disparate opinions. This was a series intentionally timed to culminate prior to the 2017 regular season; and with Jimbo Fisher’s Alabama presser scheduled for Monday afternoon, folks, it looks like we made it. See you in the trenches.
And in Atlanta.
