Since the Florida State football program began in 1947, some great quarterbacks have taken the field for the Seminoles. Here are the Top 15 to ever step foot in Doak Campbell Stadium.
Throughout the years, there have been several star quarterbacks to take the field for the Florida State football team. Although I wouldn’t go anywhere near calling them “Quarterback U,” it’s easy to see why they’ve become a premier destination for top arm talent.
For the sake of this argument, though, I want to take the focus away from today. Instead, I want to turn attention to the past. As you can probably figure out by the title, I’m going to examine the 15 greatest quarterbacks to ever wear the garnet and gold.
We all know some of the most recent signal callers to call Tallahassee home. Obviously there are players like Jameis Winston who deserve a spot on the list. However, there are other, less-familiar guys who have also stepped under center for the Seminoles and shined. Today, I want to focus on everyone — not just the guys every casual fan knows about.
So I went ahead and looked back at every starting quarterback Florida State has ever seen. From that list, I whittled it down to the top 15 to ever earn the right to play in Doak Campbell Stadium.
So without further ado, let’s take a look at the 15 best quarterbacks to ever play for Florida State. It’s a loaded list with a lot of big names, a couple of Heisman winners, and some budding stars who never quite reached their full potential.
