Heisman Trophy Winner (1996)
First Team All American (1995, 1996)
Next on my list is a player that pretty much put the Florida Gators on the map and will go down in college football as one of the best quarterbacks to ever played, Danny Wuerffel.
At this point in my list it got very difficult for me to decide who was No. 2 and who should be No. 1. I feel however that Danny Wuerffel should hold the ranking of two.
Danny Wuerffel was known for doing everything for the Gators during the mid 90's. He led Florida to four consecutive SEC championships, two title games- one a win against archrival FSU, and broke many Gator records.
After losing to Nebraska in the Fiesta Bowl in 1995, Wuerffel led the Gators back to the title game in 1996 when he succeeded in beating Florida State 52-20, giving the Gators their first ever title.
Other then achievements he led his team to, Wuerffel won the Heisman Trophy, named to the All American team twice and the following:
QB of the Year-1996, Walter Camp Award-1996, Maxwell Award-1996, Johnny Unitas Award-1996 and the Draddy Trophy-1996.
In all he won 9 awards in 1996 plus a title and a SEC championship.
It can be argued that he was one if not the greatest college quarterback ever.
