Jan. 25, 2000




Florida State’s football program is in contention for a couple of ESPY
Awards when the prestigious awards ceremony takes place in Las Vegas in
February.

The ESPY Decade Award Committee has selected Florida State’s football
program as one of the four in contention as the college team winner of the
decade. The Seminoles, who won more games than any other Div. 1-A program
in the decade, are finalists along with Duke’s men’s basketball program,
North Carolina’s women’s soccer program and Tennessee’s women’s basketball
program.

Florida State could pick up another ESPY for the 1999 season as the
football team will be challenged by the New York Yankees, U.S. Ryder Cup
team, and U.S. Women’s World Cup Soccer Team for the Team of the Year
award.

In addition, Florida State head coach Bobby Bowden is one of three
finalists for the 1999 ESPY as coach/manager of the year. Coach Bowden
joins Connecticut basketball coach Jim Calhoun and New York Yankees manager
Joe Torre as the finalists for the award.

The ESPY’s will be telecast live on ESPN on Monday, February 14th at
8:00 p.m. with proceeds benefitting the V Foundation.
