In 1957 a 149 pound sophomore running back named Fred Pickard started for FSU. In 1959, Pickard, at 160 pounds completed his career in garnet and gold. In those three years, Pickard led FSU in rushing each season. His career marks of 339 carries for 1,546 yards set Florida State records. He scored 14 TDs, averaged 4.5 yards a carry and played tough defense. In '59, Pickard was chosen Honorable Mention All-American by both AP and UPI. Fred Pickard gave FSU fans two of their greatest moments. In 1959, he scored the first TD ever scored in the FSU-Florida Series. That same year the Tennessee native went home and led the Tribe to its first victory over an SEC eleven. That October 25, Pickard gained more yards than the entire Tennessee Volunteer team. Since graduation, Pickard's successful coaching career has led him to the position of head coach at UT-Martin. Florida State hails Fred Pickard, a fine coach and brilliant and courageous athlete.
