Awards
Elected into the FSU Hall of Fame in 1991
When John Crowe came to Florida State in the fall of 1965, he came as a football, baseball, basketball and track star. He also came as the top student from his high school class, with a 3.9 cumulative average. During his years with Florida State, he further developed his outstanding athletic and academic abilities, quarterbacking the defensive secondary and leading the way in the classroom. A big play man, Crowe was one of the hardest hitters on the team and was acclaimed the best safety in Florida State history. His junior and senior years with the Tribe, John did his best to live up to that accolade. His junior year he recovered a fumble in the Texas A&M game to set up the winning touchdown, leading Florida State to its first victory of the season. He finished his senior year with 104 total tackles, an incredible total for a defensive back, and five interceptions. John Crowe's hard-hitting style started a Florida State tradition of producing some of the hardest hitting safeties in the game.
