Danny Wuerffel (Florida -- 1993-96)

Best season
1996: 207-360, 3,625 yards, 39 TDs, 13 INTs

Career
46 games, 708-1,170, 10,875 yards, 114 TDs, 42 INTs; 8 rushing TDs

Wuerffel emerged as a future star by surviving a quarterback battle with Terry Dean early in his career to become Florida's second Heisman Trophy winner as a senior in 1996. Wuerffel led the Gators to their first national championship that season and earned a place in Florida lore as one of the program's all-time greats. Wuerffel had an unusual shot-put throwing motion but pinpoint accuracy, which helped him throw a touchdown pass on 9.74 percent of his career attempts, the best mark in college football history at the time of his departure. Chosen in 4th round (No. 99 overall) in 1997 NFL Draft.

Charlie Ward (Florida State -- 1989-93)

Best season
1993: 264-380, 3032 yds, 27 TDs, 4 INTs; 339 yds, 4 TDs

Career
45 games: 473-759, 5747 yds, 49 TDs, 22 INTs; 889 yds, 10 TDs

In 1993, Ward led the Seminoles to their first National Championship, setting Florida State records for best touchdown to interception ratio (27 TDs to 4 INTs) and lowest interception percentage for a season (minimum 100 attempts). For his stellar efforts, he became the first Florida State player to win the Heisman Trophy, doing so by the second largest margin in history. He also won the Maxwell Award, the Walter Camp Award and the Davey O’Brien Award. The two-sport star went undrafted by the NFL after opting to play in the NBA instead.
