Kelvin Benjamin is best known in Tallahassee as the 6’5 WR that secured the National Championship winning catch from Jameis Winston in the 2014 Rose Bowl

Rashad Greene caught many passes, on many drives, for four seasons. One drive stands out above all others for one of the best Florida State wide receivers of all-time.

That’s the 49-yard catch that set up the championship winning touchdown from Winston to Benjamin. In that title game, Greene went 9-147.

Greene left the Noles as the all-time team leader in catches and receiving yards. The yards are also 1st all-time in the ACC.

Peter Warrick was a two-time Consensus All-American for the Noles (98-99). After not showing out in the 1999 BCS championship game, Warrick came back to school. He would have been a very high draft pick if he turned pro but he wasn’t leaving school like that.

Warrick is one of the best Florida State wide receivers ever, personally I think he was the best.

In the 2000 BCS title game, Warrick did what he had been doing since 1995. He had 6 grabs for 163 yards and 2 TDs, plus a punt return for a touchdown. #9 was the key factor in winning the Seminoles 2nd National Championship on school history.

He’s the all-time FSU leader in touchdowns with 32 and led the country in TDs in 1998. Warrick also had 207 receptions leading to 3,517 yards.
