With determination equal to his enormous talent, Richie Lewis established himself as one of the finest pitchers to ever take the mound at Florida State. Over just three seasons (1985-87), Lewis recorded 520 strikeouts in 392.2 innings, which was a Seminole all-time record and ranked second in the NCAA record book. He led the nation in strikeouts per nine innings in 1986 with a 14.2 average. He finished his career with 38 wins against only 12 losses. After leading FSU to consecutive College World Series appearances, Lewis collected back to back First Team All-America honors. Following his junior season, Lewis was drafted by the Montreal Expos in the second round and had a successful professional career with both the Colorado Rockies and Florida Marlins.
