Join the Osceola staff as well as our special guests on Thursday at 6 p.m. for our weekly Happy Hour. This week’s guests are FSU football players Ron Sellers, John Crowe and Dale McCullers, who were stars on the 1960s teams.
Subscribers as well as guests can register for our Zoom video chat here.
The three Seminoles have all been inducted into the FSU athletics hall of fame.
Sellers caught 212 passes for 3,598 yards in three years at FSU. His career yardage was a national record and lasted 19 years. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1988. He played in the NFL from 1969-73 and won a Super Bowl with the Miami Dolphins in ’73.
Crowe was a standout defensive back from 1966-68. He recorded 104 tackles and five interceptions as a senior.
McCullers had 343 tackles from 1966-68. He was an All-American as a senior.
While the 1960s FSU teams were known for their offenses under coach Bill Peterson, the defense was impressive too. Crowe and McCullers wrote a book on their teams, FSU’s Sons of the Sixties: A Case for the Defense. The book also serves as a fundraiser for a scholarship in the name of U.S. Army Lt. Johnnie P. Stephens Jr., a teammate who was killed in Vietnam in April 1969.
