Paul Piurowski, one of the best linebackers to ever play in the garnet and gold, carved his way into Seminole history with an outstanding career. He was the fourth leading tackler on the team in 1978, despite missing several games and he ranked second as both a junior and senior. He combined with fellow linebacker Reggie Herring for more than 200 stops each year, the pair led the Seminoles to back to back Orange Bowl Classics. Piurowski’s best season came in 1979 when he made 123 tackles, had six sacks, and scored a touchdown off an interception while helping Florida State to a perfect 11-0 regular season mark. During his final two seasons FSU posted 21 wins against just three losses.
