Hall of Fame Class:
1997 (Football)

Over his four-year career from 1987-90, wide receiver Lawrence Dawsey caught 128 passes for 2,129 yards-only FSU legends Ron Sellers and Fred Biletnikoff caught more passes at the time for the Seminoles. Dawsey was named first team Associated Press All-American following a spectacular senior season in 1990 when he caught 65 passes for 999 yards. The reception and yardage totals ranked fourth on the FSU all-time lists and his performance was the best for a Seminole receiver in 18 years. Dawsey tied Sellers’ school record of 30 consecutive games with at least one reception with a dramatic 76-yard touchdown catch on the second play of the Florida game. He had 20 career touchdown receptions, which ranked as the fourth highest total in Seminole history.
