Three of Florida State’s most distinguished players are among those being considered on the 2022 College Football Hall of Fame ballot.
Marvin Jones, Warrick Dunn and Peter Warrick are three of 78 players from the Football Bowl Subdivision who are being considered, the National Football Foundation (NFF) & College Hall of Fame announced Wednesday. The NFF said the class would be officially announced in early 2022.
Dunn was FSU’s first tailback to gain more than 1,000 yards in three consecutive seasons (1994-96). He averaged a stunning 6.9 yards per carry in his career. As a freshman in 1993, he helped the Seminoles win a national title. Dunn’s stats and on-field achievements can be viewed here.
Jones was a two-time first-team All-American, including unanimous honors in 1992 as a junior. He won the Butkus and Lombardi Awards in ’92. Jones had 369 career tackles and helped FSU claim three straight bowl wins. Jones’ starts and on-field achievements can be viewed here.
Warrick was a two-time first-team All-American, including unanimous honors in 1999 as a senior. He helped FSU claim the national championships by knocking off Virginia Tech in the 2000 Sugar Bowl. He finished with 3,517 receiving yards (third on FSU’s all-time list) and 32 receiving touchdowns (first on FSU’s list). Warrick’s stats and on-field achievements can be viewed here.
The qualifications are for a player to be a first-team All-American and be 10 full seasons from their final collegiate year.
