It wasn't far from Leon High School to Florida State University, but Jesse Forbes covered that distance and kept right on running. Three times Forbes was a track All-American. He reached the finals of the 100 meters at the NCAA in both 1975 and 1978, and was a member of the 400 meter relay team that reached the NCAA finals in 1978.

Four relay teams, anchored by Forbes, held records. In 1978, he anchored a 400 meter team to a Metro Conference record. In '77 his 400 meter relay team set FSU and Mike Long Track marks at 39.1. In individual events, Forbes was co-holder of the FSU school record in the Indoor 60 at 6.1 and the Outdoor 100 at 9.3. In 1978, Forbes, who also lettered in varsity football, was co-captain of the Seminole track team. A high school track coach following graduation, Jesse Forbes was a streak in garnet and gold and tracks across the nation.
