1974 Florida State Signees/Newcomers

From the 1974 FSU Football Handbook, page 26.

Gino Bennie, 6-2, 215, C, Orlando

Paul Bibler, 6-1, 215, LB, Sunrise

Blaise Boscaccy, 6-3, 225, OL, Saint Charles, IL

Leon Bright, 5-9, 175, RB, Merritt Island

Mike Brown, 6-2, 208, OG, Auburndale

Aaron Carter, 5-9, 180, LB, Gainesville

Ron Coppess, 6-3, 215, QB, Escondido, CA - Transfer from Palomar Junior College in San Marcos, Calif. Has excellent size and his ability to run Florida State's new offense (Veer-T) allowed him to finish No. 1 at end of spring. A good runner, he also handled the passing attack well for a newcomer. Needs to attain dedication that has become hallmark of former great Seminole quarterbacks. His strong arm allows him to throw deep.

Dan Corcoran, 6-2, 230, C, Holley, NY

Jessie Corner, 5-11, 195, FB, Pensacola

Craig Cunningham, 6-1, 207, OG, Ormond Beach

Rick Duncan, 6-2, 189, DE, Sarasota

Tony Falvo, 6-0, 240, OG, Wexford, PA - A junior college player recruited from Lees McRae in Banner Elk, N. C. Excellent physical tools for nose guard with good speed. Runs 40 in 4.75 and benches about 330 pounds. Has to develop mental toughness to live up to potential.

Clark Galen, 6-1, 207, LB, Miami - Did a good job on the scout squad and this earned him a promotion to the varsity this spring. Has average speed and strength. Needs work on lateral movement. His dedication makes up for a lot of things.

Garry Halfacre, 5-11, 191, P, Cantonment

Curtis Harris, 6-3, 230, DT, Dolton, IL

Ken Harrison, 6-2, 210, OG, Auburndale

Len Harvey, 6-4, 217, DT, Tallahassee

Jimmy Heggins, 5-11, 200, RB, Salisbury, NC

Nat Henderson, 6-4, 235, DT, Albany, GA - Enrolled before spring practice and got maximum benefit out of drills. Coaches were pleased with his toughness and raw potential. Tremendous size although he'll be asked to cut weight to about 245. If he develops more strength he'll contribute this fall. He's a tough one-on-one player and it is difficult to run right at him.

Jimmy Hicks, 6-2, 231, OT, Chipley

John Holcomb, 6-2, 200, LB, Tampa

Bobby Jackson, 5-10, 164, DB, Albany, GA - One of the more pleasant surprises of spring. He suffered two minor injuries early in the spring but came back to be impressive during latter stages. Excellent feet and super athletic skills. Naturally lacks experience since he's fresh out of high school, but still should be a top contender for starting corner position. Has above average speed.

Terry Jackson, 5-11, 176, RB, Perry

Joe Joyner, 5-10, 168, WR, Orlando

Mike Kettman, 6-0, 236, OT, Palos Park, IL

Larry Key, 5-9, 181, RB, Inverness - Entered college before spring drills after exceptional high school career. Hampered by injuries during spring but when he was healthy he showed coaches enough that they figure he fits into plans this fall. Has real athletic ability but still lacks concentration and maturity. Coaches figure he is in about the same situation as was Rudy Thomas last season. However, they figure fall practice will make a world of difference. Has run a 9.8 100-yard dash. Was state prep weight-lifting champ in his class.

Jim Keyton, 6-4, 240, OT, Thomasville, GA

Sean McCowen, 6-1, 200, RB, Fort Walton Beach

Lee Nelson, 5-10, 183, DB, Melbourne - Transferred from Pensacola Junior College. Was out of football last season. A "walkon" who earned scholarship through his outstanding spring practice. He, along with freshman Robert Jackson, were the most pleasant surprises among defensive backs. A corner candidate, he has good speed and is a great hitter. Inexperience is his only drawback.

Roger Overby, 6-0, 175, WR, Tampa

Brad Prior, 6-5, 200, QB, Lake Wales

Gary Rose, 6-4, 225, DT, East Saint Louis, IL

Tom Rushing, 6-4, 255, DT, Ehrenberg, AZ

Sam Swygert, 6-3, 205, OG, Macon, GA

Nat Terry, 6-0, 175, DB, Tampa

Keith Tuten, 6-4, 209, DE, Indianatlantic - Outstanding physical tools for position. When he matures, he'll be a fine player. Exceptional quickness.

Clyde Walker, 6-3, 198, QB, Chapel Hill, NC

Milt Wilkerson, 6-0, 230, NG, Dolton, IL

Danny Witcher, 6-2, 216, TE, Toledo, OH
