FSU football career rushing leader No. 1: Dalvin Cook
- 4,464 rushing yards
- 46 rushing touchdowns
- 6.5 yards per rush
Soaring past every other previous Florida State rusher was Dalvin Cook, who is the lone Nole to reach the 4K rushing-yard club during his time in Tallahassee; amazingly enough, a three-year journey. Even more amazingly, Cook was a backup to Devonta Freeman when the latter was an upperclassman.
Cook surpassed Freeman at FSU, though. To be fair to Freeman, Cook surpassed everyone. And in style, barrelling over defenders like a monster truck in a bumper car arena.
Cook has gone on to the NFL to become a four-time Pro Bowler on the Minnesota Vikings. His tenure in the Twin Cities ended in 2023 before he moved on to join a New York Jets backfield featuring Aaron Rodgers.
Whatever he does moving forward, it will only add to a legacy that is secured by the most dominant showing ever by a Florida State running back.
