1972 FSU Football Handbook

Gary Huff and James Thomas

On January 9, 1972, the NCAA decided freshmen could play varsity football and basketball starting August 1, 1972.

1972 Florida State Signees/Newcomers

From the 1972 FSU Football Handbook, page 28.

Mike Allen, 6-4, 180, WR, Willoughby, OH - Has all the physical tools to become an outstanding receiver. Needs experience. Had some exceptional moments during spring practice. Showed he could catch the long ball. His height will be a definite advantage. He'll be competing for the wide receiver spot opposite Barry Smith. If he matures early enough, he could help receiving corps greatly.

Bob Anderson, 6-2, 218, OT, Rockledge - Because of injuries and some players missing spring practice, was weak tackle starter all spring. Took advantage of this opportunity showing coaches he's not far away. Showed much improvement as practice progressed and impressed staff with willing attitude. Proved he likes game by hard work. Will give depth to a position where depth is needed.

Ahmet Askin, 6-0, 175, PK, Tallahassee - Graduated from Tallahassee's Godby HS in February and enrolled in Florida State in time for spring practice. Born in Cyprus but nicknamed "Turk." Family moved to United States in 1968. Had played soccer in Cyprus and thus kicks soccer-style. Is Florida State's second straight foreign-born kicker since Frank Fontes was born in North Africa. Has strong leg but was inconsistent in the spring. He'll battle for kicking job.

Paul Baker, 6-1, 215, C, Doraville, GA

Bruce Bell, 6-0, 195, LB, Pensacola

Ricky Blythe, 6-2, 210, TE, Winter Park

Brooks Burroughs, 6-0, 205, RB, Somerset, NJ

Phil Cahoon, 5-10, 175, WR, Mobile, AL - Moved from defensive back to wide receiver late in spring and showed definite possibilities. Caught the ball as well or better than any of the young receivers. Could add depth if he starts off well this fall.

Tom Chandler, 6-1, 210, LB, Pensacola

Jeff Chestnut, 6-0, 180, RB, Stone Mountain, GA - Was capable runner with the freshmen last season but was switched to wide receiver before spring drills in an effort to give depth to that position. Then moved back to running back for last two weeks of practice and was impressive. Could be a factor this fall if he shows as much day-by-day improvement as he did in spring. Good outside runner and better than average receiver.

Randy Coffield, 6-3, 215, DE, Hialeah

Tom Cooper, 6-2, 205, RB, Panama City

John Henry Davis, 6-1, 210, DE, Orlando

Mike Davison, 5-11, 200, RB, Bradenton - Outstanding spring practice after solid freshman performance. Showed improvement with every week of spring drills. Gained confidence as drills progressed and moved up the ladder. Ended up as the No. 1 fullback. Coaches consider him to be one of top four running backs. Runs to daylight well and his open field running improved. He was leading receiver among the running backs this spring. Needs to improve his blocking. A definite prospect.

Mike Dely, 6-4, 200, DE, Miami

Bobby Elam, 6-2, 230, DT, Centreville, AL

Jimmy Everett, 6-3, 190, TE, Tallahassee

Jeff Gardner, 5-11, 225, OL, Miami - Considered best offensive lineman on last season's freshman team. Was making outstanding progress during spring practice before knee injury sidelined him near end. Coaches think he can be good one. Has ability to be good drive blocker.

Ben Graham, 6-3, 175, DB, Punta Gorda

Chris Griffin, 5-11, 160, DB, Tampa

Jeff Gunby, 6-2, 204, DE, Thomson, GA

Mike Harder, 6-4, 190, TE, Bristol, PA

David Harper, 6-3, 234, OT, Farmville, VA

Donnie Holley, 5-11, 182, WR, Elba, AL

Earl Humes, 5-11, 174, DB, Miami

Bill Johnson, 6-0, 205, LB, Cocoa Beach - Ran second string weak side LB all spring behind veteran Clint Parker. Has good athletic ability. Will probably also be used on specialty teams. Coaches are looking for progress so that he can give mid-season help.

Greg Johnson, 6-4, 240, DT, Fruitland Park

Ken Johnson, 5-11, 175, WR, Lutz

Vic Johnson, 6-3, 225, OT, Lake City - Youngster who performed well in spring. Did a good job of getting his weight down which pleased coaches. Improved his pass protection. Should give added depth at strong tackle.

Bob Jones, 6-3, 225, C-OG, Lighthouse Point - Came on extremely strong during spring practice after being moved from defensive tackle. Has perfect build for center. Showed so much talent during spring that he may be moved to guard and get a chance to start. Even if he was moved, he would still be No. 2 center. Biggest asset is speed. Also has good quickness. Is an all around athlete. The class of the upcoming freshmen offensive linemen.

Randy Kaiser, 5-11, 174, DB, Oak Park, IL

John Kilmurray, 6-1, 190, WR, Lanoka Harbor, NJ

David McGinn, 6-2, 185, RB, Jacksonville

Mike McGowan, 5-8, 169, DB, Norfolk, VA

Bobby McKinnon, 6-1, 190, RB, Lake Worth

Scott Meseroll, 6-1, 220, FB, Piscataway, NJ

Fred Miller, 6-1, 210, RB, Jacksonville

Mike Norman, 5-8, 185, RB, Tallahassee - Hampered by injuries most of spring. However, had two excellent scrimmages. Despite size, has good upper body strength which makes him tough to pull down. An outstanding blocker. Has shown tremendous desire and is counted on for duty this fall. Was teammate of David Miles on state championship team at Leon High. Might be given shot at place kicking duties.

Paul Oglesby, 6-2, 229, OT-OG, Jacksonville - Played weak tackle in spring. Showed great promise but needs experience. Went through learning process and responded well. Vast improvement over the final two weeks of drill.

Mark Orlando, 6-1, 185, QB, Westfield, NY

John Palermo, 6-4, 220, TE, Newburgh, NY

Earl Passwaters, 6-3, 215, TE-DE, Bridgeville, DE

Lester Payton, 6-0, 190, RB, Orlando - This youngster was having an outstanding spring when he suffered a shoulder separation during the third week of practice. Was wide receiver on freshman team. Fastest offensive back who is definite breakaway threat. Needs to work on receiving and blocking technique. Figures in 1972 plans if he regains early spring form.

Ralph Petrillo, 6-1, 186, DB, Newburgh, NY

Greg Pounds, 6-3, 200, LB, Daytona Beach

Tom Prestwood, 6-4, 220, DE, Chattanooga, TN

Smokey Ragins, 6-1, 238, OT, Plant City

Mark Reeves, 5-10, 180, DB, Nashville, TN

Lewis Risk, 6-0, 190, DB, Miami

Rusty Russell, 5-11, 205, LB, Athens, GA

Rocky Saldana, 6-1, 223, C-OG, Dallas, TX

Melvin Scruggs, 5-11, 221, DT, Dixie, GA - Best of young defensive linemen. Came out of pack during spring practice and caught coach's eye. Had fine game in Orlando. Good quickness and outstanding effort. Should be good run defender when he gains maturity during season. Size and ability compare favorably to Bobby Anderson. Counted on for depth after he gains some experience.

Billy Sexton, 6-2, 187, QB, Tallahassee

Harry Slagle, 6-4, 205, OG, Phenix City, AL

Andy Stockton, 6-0, 175, WR, Saint Petersburg

Jerry Taylor, 6-0, 203, LB, Jacksonville

Steve Vickers, 6-0, 175, DB, Tampa

Jim Welch, 6-2, 214, C, Jacksonville
