Bio

Quite possibly the most prolific pass catcher to strap on an FSU helmet, Ron Sellers, today, still owns 14 Seminole receiving records.

He caught 212 passes for 3,598 yards from 1966-68.

He averaged 119.9 yards receiving—per game, over his career, and caught at least one pass in 30 consecutive games.

Sellers finished his remarkable career with not only nearly every record secured for the next 40 years, but he was also voted a consensus All-American in 1967—pulling down 70 catches for 1,228 yards and eight touchdowns. The following season he captured 86 receptions for 1,496 yards and 12 scores in his final season. Sellers caught at least 13 passes in a game seven times, had 18 100-yard receiving games and had five games of over 200 yards receiving. Both unbelievable marks by even today’s standards.

Sellers was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1988.
