Elected into the FSU Hall of Fame in 2016
Alex Barron became FSU’s seventh two-time consensus All-American when the offensive tackle was selected for virtually every team as a junior (2003) and senior (2004). In fact, he became the first offensive lineman in school history to earn back-to-back Barron, who starred for head coach Bobby Bowden from 2001-2004, was one of three finalists for the 2004 Outland Trophy as a senior. He allowed just five quarterback pressures and one sack over 11 regular season games his senior year and was the top-rat Barron started 31 games over his FSU career on teams that finished 8-4 in 2001, 9-5 in 2002, 10-3 in 2003 and 9-3 in 2004. He played on teams that advanced to two Gator Bowls (2001, 2004) and two Orange Bowls (2002, 2003). He was twice named first-tea Barron, who graduated with a degree in social science, was selected with the 19th pick in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams. He played eight years in the league before retiring in 2012.
