From 1948 through 1951 Florida State won 30 games while losing only 4. Steady, reliable, hard hitting guard on the four fine teams was Miamian Bill Dawkins. Many honors came to Dawkins. In 1950 and '51 he was picked on the All-Florida college team. In 1951, he was named Little All-American and at the end of that season he became the Seminoles' first gridder to be named to post-season all-star squads. Dawkins played in both the North-South and Senior Bowl games. In 1951, the star guard was the Seminoles' captain.

After graduation, Dawkins returned to Miami where for years he was one of the state's most respected high school football coaches. Fine two way lineman and great team leader, Bill Dawkins was a real giant in the history of Seminole football.
