Awards
Elected into the FSU Hall of Fame in 1992
William M. "Billy" Rhodes, Jr. is still one of the highest drafted offensive lineman to come out of Florida State. A fourth round draft pick by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1969, Rhodes played in the 1969 Senior Bowl and is considered one of the best lineman ever to attend Florida State.

During his four years, 1965-68, Rhodes played for legendary FSU Head Coach Bill Peterson. He lettered on three teams that went to bowl games, the 1966 Sun Bowl, the 1967 Gator Bowl, and the 1968 Peach Bowl. He was one of only two Seminoles, the other being Ron Sellers, to play in the 1969 Senior Bowl.

Rhodes was picked by Bill McGrotha to the all-time FSU football team. Longtime Seminole line coach Bob Harrison's lists Rhodes as one of the toughest and best lineman to play for him. He has continued his involvement and support for Florida State over the years. Rhodes has been a Seminole Booster and Tomahawk Club member, always available to give help and support at any time.

The Eustis, Florida native has been a very successful business and family man. He continues to be a tribute to his alma mater just as he was as a player and student.
