Hall of Fame Class:
1977 (Football)

Ron Seller’s was one of the finest receivers in the history of college football and many of his records lasted well into the pass-happy offenses used by schools in the 1990s. Sellers caught 212 passes for 3,598 yards from 1966-69 both of which have held up for at least 35 years. He averaged a remarkable 7.1 catches per game over his FSU career. He was a consensus All-American as a junior in 1967 after leading the nation with 1,228 yards and finishing second in receptions with 70. He also earned All-America honors on a number of teams as a senior in 1968. His number 34 jersey was retired by the athletics department in 1968 and was only the second in school history to be so honored. Sellers was a first round draft pick by the Boston Patriots in 1969.
