Elected into the FSU Hall of Fame in 1985
A World Class sprinter all four years, 1976-1980, at Florida State, Mike Roberson set records at all levels of competition. He set FSU indoor and outdoor marks in the 60, 100, and 200, and Metro Conference records in the 100 and 200. Roberson won a gold medal in the 100 in the World University Games and was a member of the gold medal winning 400 meter relay team in the Pan American Games.

In 1980, FSU's greatest team, led by Roberson, finished 3rd in the NCAA. Mike finished 2nd in the 100 and ran on the 3rd place 400 meter relay team. His last race as a collegian was his greatest. Mike won the NCAA 200 meter championship at 19.96, becoming the first human in history to break 20 seconds at sea level. Anyone who saw Mike Roberson run the curve in the 200 will remember the sight as a supreme example of athletic grace and power.
