LEGENDS

KEZ McCORVEY

McCorvey was a four-year starter at Florida State from 1990 to 1994, a span in which the Seminoles won five bowl games, three consecutive undefeated Atlantic Coast Conference championships (1992–94), and the 1993 national championship. His 192 career receptions placed him second only to Ron Sellers in the FSU record books at the time. As a junior on the 1993 championship team, McCorvey recorded 74 receptions, also second to Sellers at the time. (As of 2016, McCorvey ranks fourth all-time in career and single-season receptions for FSU, and fifth all-time in receiving yardage.) McCorvey earned all-ACC honors in 1992 and 1993, and multiple all-American honors as a senior in 1994. He was a semifinalist for the 1994 Fred Biletnikoff Award. He had at least one reception in each of the last 32 games of his FSU career. He graduated from FSU in 1995 with a degree in sociology and was inducted into the FSU Football Hall of Fame in 2005.

ANDRE COOPER

Cooper played for legendary coach Bobby Bowden at Florida State University from 1993 – 1997. He was a member of the school’s first national championship team in 1993. As a sophomore in 1994, Cooper tied for the team lead in touchdown receptions with 5 setting the stage for a big junior season. As a junior in 1995, Cooper recorded 71 catches for 1,002 yards and 15 touchdowns. Those 15 touchdown receptions in a season is a single-season record that Cooper shares with fellow Nole Legend Kelvin Benjamin. Cooper added 3 more touchdowns in the 1996 Orange Bowl vs. Notre Dame to finish the season with 18 touchdowns. Cooper was named Orange Bowl MVP and inducted into the Orange Bowl Hall of Fame in 2014. Cooper twice earned First Team All-ACC (1995 & 1996) and Honorable Mention All-American (1995).

 

Upon his departure in 1996, Cooper ranked in Florida State’s top 10 in career receptions, career receiving yards, and career receiving touchdowns and currently sits 10th in career receptions, 17th in career receiving yards, and 6th in career receiving touchdowns. Cooper graduated from Florida State in 1997 with a degree in Social Sciences.

E.G. GREEN

Green played for coach Bobby Bowden at Florida State University. He redshirted during the 1993 national championship year for the Seminoles. As a redshirt freshman in 1994, Green played in 11 games, catching 18 passes for 192 yards and one touchdown. During his sophomore year in 1995, Green emerged onto the national scene, catching 60 passes for 1007 yards and 10 touchdowns in 11 games. As a junior in 1996, Green and the Seminoles utilized a more run-oriented offense behind halfback Warrick Dunn, but Green pulled in 34 passes for 662 yards and 7 touchdowns in a year that saw the Seminoles play for the national title. In his senior year, Green cemented his place as one of college football's finest receivers with his second 1000-yard season. He ended 1997 with 54 catches for 1059 yards and 11 touchdowns and was named a 2nd Team All-American by both the Associated Press and the Football News.

 

Green left Florida State as the Seminoles' all-time leader in receiving touchdowns, with 29 in his career. And with 182 total points, he still stands at 13th on the all-time scoring list at Florida State. During Green's five years as a player, from 1993 to 1997, Florida State amassed a 56–6–1 record.
