Final: Vote for the Sunshine State's greatest college quarterback

BY Brian De Los Santos • February 1, 2015


Who is the best quarterback to ever play for a Florida university?

Seminoles fans have spoken.

After three rounds, we've dwindled the field of 16 down to two -- and they both hail from Florida State University.

The championship battle pits old school (Charlie Ward) vs. new school (Jameis Winston).

In many ways, the two are similar. Both led FSU to a national championship. Both claimed a Heisman Trophy. Neither have played a down in the NFL.

Ward, our No. 6 seed, was a two-sports star for the Seminoles (1989-93) and chose an NBA career over the NFL. He was the first FSU player to win the Heisman and did so by the second-largest margin in history after a season in which he threw for 27 touchdowns with just four interceptions.

Winston, our No. 4 seed, is expected to be one of the top picks in this year's NFL Draft after going 26-1 as the Seminoles' starter the past two seasons. In 2013, he set national freshman records with 4,057 yards passing and 40 TDs and became the youngest player to ever win the Heisman.

So which Seminoles QB did it best?
