William Floyd is one of the legendary figures of Florida State football and one of the finest leaders in the history of the program.
One of the leaders and anchors of FSU’s first national title team in 1993. Nearly impossible to stop from short yardage as a junior, Floyd totaled 321 yards on 63 carries during the regular season. His fourth-quarter touchdown plunge against Nebraska in the national championship game kept the Seminoles in position for the win.
Floyd was drafted in the first round by San Francisco, where he won a Super Bowl ring, and he played a total of seven seasons in the NFL.
