Michael Ray Garvin Named ACC Co-Specialist Of The Week

Sept. 29, 2008

            TALLAHASSEE, Fla.  – Florida State senior Michael Ray Garvin was named the ACC’s co-specialist of the week following his performance versus Colorado. Garvin earned his first career touchdown on a kickoff return as he gave the Seminoles a 25-14 fourth quarter over Colorado lead with a career-long 94-yard kickoff return. His return was the first kickoff returned for a touchdown by a Seminole player since Leon Washington returned a kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown against Clemson on Oct. 3, 2002. That was a streak of 75 games between kick-off return TDs.


            Garvin’s 94-yard kickoff return for a touchdown is tied for the 10th longest in school history. For the game Garvin earned a career-high 119 kickoff return yards and increased his career total to 1,195 yards. He is currently third all-time in FSU in that category after setting the single season record in 2008. He is the second Seminole to be honored by the ACC this season joining Rodney Hudson
