Florida State University revealed their 2022 Athletics Hall of Fame class Thursday. Among the 11 future members are two Wide Receivers. The first is E.G. Green who played for the Seminoles from 1993 to 1997. The second is Snoop Minnis who played from 1997 to 2000. Both players were a step above the rest during their careers at FSU. Let’s take a look at what these players achieved during their time playing for the Seminoles.
E.G. Green began his career at FSU redshirting through the 1993 National Championship year. The following year as a Redshirt Freshman, Green put up 192 yards and one touchdown on 18 catches. His sophomore year Green put himself on the map. In 11 games, Green caught 60 passes for 1,007 yards and 10 touchdowns. The next year during his junior year, the Seminoles leaned more heavily to the run game and Green slumped to 662 yards and 7 touchdowns on 34 catches. The following year Bobby Bowden opened up the passing game again and Green put up another 1,000 yard season. His senior year he produced 1,059 yards and 11 touchdowns on 54 catches. He also took home 2nd Team All-American honors. At the conclusion of Green’s college career, he held at the time, FSU’s record for all-time receiving touchdowns with 29. Today he sits at 13th on FSU’s All-Time Scoring list. Green went on the play for the Indianapolis Colts in the NFL for three years. Today, E.G. Green is the Head Football Coach at Destin High School in Destin, Florida.
Marvin “Snoop” Minnis had a pretty average playing career until his senior year. In his first three years combined, Snoop put up 758 yards and six touchdowns on 52 catches. However, in his Senior year Snoop established himself as one of the Seminoles’ finest Wide Receivers in school history. Snoop went all out and caught 63 passes for 1,340 yards and 11 touchdowns. We are talking an average of 21.3 yards per catch folks. During this monstrous season he also caught a 98 yard touchdown pass and it remains tied for the FSU team record for Longest Touchdown Reception. He was also named a finalist for the Fred Biletnikoff Award. Snoop went on to play for the Kansas City Chiefs for three years in the NFL.
The induction ceremony will begin at 6:00 p.m. August 26th at the University Center Club.
