Osceola Happy Hour with former FSU WR Shannon Baker

You are invited to join Jerry, Bob and I on Thursday, Aug. 13 at 6 p.m. for another Osceola Zoom Happy Hour. 

Our special guest this week is former FSU great Shannon Baker who starred at wide receiver for the Seminoles from 1989-1992. Shannon or “Shake” as he is known by his friends was one of, if not the fastest, players on Bobby Bowden’s roster when he played. During his career Baker totaled 73 receptions for 1,043 yards and scored 11 touchdowns. He was also a dangerous kick returner, totaling 847 yards on 37 attempts. 

The Lakeland, Fla., native, who now calls Tallahassee home, also ran track at FSU. Among his accomplishments in track and field, he placed first in the 100 meters in the 1991 Metro Conference Championship with a time of 10.48 and placed second in the ACC Championships in 1992 with a 100-meter time of 10.35. 

Shannon would go on to be drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in 1993 and would also go onto to play for the Indianapolis Colts. He also played in the CFL from 1995-98. Shannon spent two seasons with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and two seasons with the Saskatchewan Rough Riders. 

Please join us Thursday as we catch up with ‘Shake’ to find out what he has been up to since his FSU and professional football days, to talk about why he became a Seminole and he shares some of his experiences of being a part of the FSU Dynasty. 

Here is the registration link. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

We hope to see you then,

Jerry, Bob and Pat
