Hall of Fame Class:
1985 (Football)

In four years at Florida State (1976-1979), Wally Woodham threw 476 passes, completing 273 for 3,550 yards and 22 touchdowns. In his greatest performance, he ripped the Florida Gator defense to shreds in 1978 completing 16 of 24 passes for 179 yards, winning AP’s Southeastern back of the week for his effort. Even better known than their statistics to FSU fans was what Woodham and his friend and fellow quarterback Jimmy Jordan did at FSU was win. From 1977 through 1979, Woodham led Florida State to the top nationally with a record of 29-6, including three straight victories over Florida. His unselfish play and the team’s success propelled FSU into a perennial Top 20 program.
