QUOTES FROM THE SHOW
“Through all my trials and tribulations, I could always count on Coach Bowden and Coach Gladden, and all of the coaching staff from Florida State. It meant so much to me to have them there for me, as well as my former teammates. That feeling of always having a place to go, or a shoulder to lean on is something I’ll always take with me.” – Sammie Smith
“What you’re seeing in 1987 is the berth of something special at Florida State from the class of 1985. In 1985 we had a recruiting class featuring Odell Haggins, Eric Hayes, Pat Tomberlin, myself and Deion Sanders. We knew it was just a matter of time before we were a national powerhouse” – Sammie Smith
