Bobby Butler starred on some of the finest defensive teams in Florida State history. His reputation as a cover cornerback was so strong that teams steered clear of him for most of his junior and senior seasons yet he still managed 11 career interceptions which ranked among FSU’s Top 10. Butler, who consistently started from 1977-80, finally received recognition by the national media as a senior when he was named third team AP All-American. He led an FSU defense that helped the Seminoles finish 39-8 over his career with berths in two Orange and one Tangerine Bowl. No Seminole fan was surprised to watch him excel for 11 seasons for Atlanta who picked him in the first round.
