Peter Boulware was a lightning quick pass rusher who earned a place among the 50 best football players in ACC history as well as becoming a perennial all-pro in the NFL. Boulware led the nation and set an FSU single season record with 19 quarterback sacks as a junior in 1996 while earning consensus All-America honors. He was named the Football News National Defensive Player of the Year and the ACC Defensive Player of the Year in 1996. An outstanding student, Boulware graduated early from Florida State and chose to enter the NFL draft. He would almost certainly have set the school record for career quarterback sacks had he stayed, since he finished with 34 over three seasons, which was just 1.5 short of the record.
