A Seminole swan song?

Prior to Saturday night, only nine Florida State players had ever registered 1,000-yard seasons.

Well, make that 10.

Because running back Cam Akers wasn’t the only ’Nole to achieve the rarified air of the 1,000-yard club this season by surpassing that mark rushing. Redshirt-sophomore WR Tamorrion Terry hit four-digits through the air on the strength of his game-high 131 receiving yards in Gainesville. That put “Scary” Terry at 1,023 yards for the 2019 season, the ninth most in a single Seminole season.

Here’s a look at FSU’s 1k club, which was last accessed by Rashad Greene in 2014:

1: Ron Sellers (1968) 1,496

2: Rashad Greene (2014) 1,365

3: Snoop Minnis (2000) 1,340

4: Barry Smith (1972) 1,243

5: Peter Warrick (1998) 1,232

6: Ron Sellers (1967) 1,228

7: Rashad Greene (2013) 1,128

8: E.G. Green (1997) 1,059

9. Tamorrion Terry (2019) 1,023

T10: Anquan Boldin (2002) 1,011

T10: Kelvin Benjamin (2013) 1,011

12: E.G. Green (1995) 1,007

13: Andre Cooper (1995) 1,002

Of course, Terry could definitely move up this list, but like Akers, we’ll have to see if he elects to play in Florida State’s bowl game, as it’s rather expected that Terry will forego his remaining eligibility to turn pro after this season.

Terry joining Akers above 1k yards marks just the fourth time in program history that FSU has had a receiver and running back accomplish that feat in the same season (2019, 2014, 2013, and 1995— one of these years is not like the others).
