From 1966 through 1968 a 198 pound linebacker from Live Oak, Dale McCullers, blazed his way into Seminole grid annals as one of the most brilliant defenders to play for Florida State. He led FSU defenders into three consecutive bowls: Sun, Gator, and Peach. In 1967, Dale was named AP lineman of the week after making 17 unassisted tackles against Memphis State. The following year AP honored McCullers again after he made 20 unassisted tackles in the Texas A&M game. He was the defensive leader in the '67 victory over Florida. At the close of his senior season Dale McCullers was chosen 1st team All-American by NEA and 3rd team All-American by AP. He was on AP's All-Southeastern Independent squad and played in the post-season All-American bowl. Quick, aggressive, and intelligent, Dale McCullers was truly an all-time Garnet and Gold football player.
