College career

Buckley was a two-year starter and three-year letterman at Florida State (1989–91), and left as the school's all-time leader in interceptions (21) and interception return yards (501).[1] His career interception yardage total of 501 is an NCAA record also tied school records for touchdowns off interception returns (four) and punt returns (three). He was named first-team All-American and won Jim Thorpe Award, given annually to nation's top cornerback, as a junior. He led the nation with 12 interceptions for 238 yards and two touchdowns. He was named second-team All-American by Associated Press, The Sporting News and The Football News as a junior. Had six interceptions with two returned for touchdowns. He finished 7th in the Heisman voting in 1991. He played two years of varsity baseball and was a sprinter on the outdoor track team for one year. He was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the NFL draft.

Professional career

Buckley is the only player with 50+ interceptions to never make a Pro Bowl. In a game against Cincinnati in 1992, his rookie season, Buckley set what remains a current record as the youngest player to return a punt for a touchdown in NFL history (21 years, 105 days). That was his only punt return for a touchdown of his career. In 1996, he led the league in interception return yards with 164. On April 3, 1995, the Packers traded Buckley to Miami for "past considerations."

He had at least one interception in 13 consecutive seasons. In the 2001 AFC Championship Game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Buckley had an intereception in the 24-17 win. He earned a Super Bowl ring 2 weeks later in the win over the St. Louis Rams.


Finally getting his first on-the-field coaching position, Buckley was hired by his collegiate head coach's son, Terry Bowden, at the University of Akron in January 2012 to coach cornerbacks. This reunited him with Coach Chuck Amato and with Coach Todd Stroud—who he played for, and coached with at FSU.[2]

After two seasons at Akron, he was hired as the cornerbacks coach at the University of Louisville in January 2014.[3]

On January 7, 2016 Buckley was hired as the safeties coach at Mississippi State University[4][5]


Buckley has three daughters, Sherrell, Brianna and Britney. He majored in Theater with a minor in Political Science, and played baseball in the Atlanta Braves organization prior to reporting to GB training camp in July 1994. He is the son of Eddie Buckley Sr of Columbia, Ms and Laura Buckley of Pascagoula, Ms. He was a distant cousin of former Chicago Bears RB Walter Payton. His hobbies include baseball, basketball and golf. Has participated in events benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. He has worked on behalf of the national "Feed the Children" campaign. He assisted in building a house in Little Haiti for Habitat for Humanity during the 1999 offseason. Sports Talk radio host Jim Rome refers to Buckley as T-Buck and credits him as one of The Jungle's first guests who appeared consistently on the program. Rome credits Buckley as the inventor of the Lambeau Leap, based on an interview that Buckley gave.

1991 College Football All-America Team

The 1991 College Football All-America team is composed of college football players who were selected as All-Americans by various organizations and publications that chose College Football All-America Teams in 1991. It is an honor given annually to the best American college football players at their respective positions.

They are: (1) the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA); (2) the Associated Press (AP); (3) the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA); (4) the United Press International (UPI); and (5) the Walter Camp Football Foundation (WCFF). Other notable selectors included Football News, Scripps Howard (SH), The Sporting News (TSN), and the Newspaper Enterprise Association in conjunction with World Almanac.

Nine players were unanimously selected by all five official selectors. They are: running back Vaughn Dunbar of Indiana; wide receiver Desmond Howard of Michigan; center Jay Leeuwenburg of Colorado; tackle Greg Skrepenak of Michigan; defensive ends Santana Dotson of Baylor and Steve Emtman of Washington; linebacker Robert Jones of East Carolina; defensive back Terrell Buckley of Florida State; and punter Mark Bounds of Texas Tech.

The club posted a 9–7 record under new coach Mike Holmgren, earning them a second-place finish in the NFC Central division. 1992 saw the emergence of QB Brett Favre and the start of the Packers' success of the 1990s.

1995 Miami Dolphins season

The 1995 Miami Dolphins season was the franchise's 30th season in the National Football League. This was coach Don Shula's last season as head coach before retiring. They lost the AFC Wild Card Playoffs to the Buffalo Bills 37-22.

1996 Buffalo Bills season

The 1996 Buffalo Bills season was their 37th in the league. The team matched their previous season's record of 10–6 and qualified for the playoffs, for the second consecutive season and eighth time in nine seasons. It was the final season for All-Pro QB Jim Kelly as he retired after the Playoff loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

1996 Miami Dolphins season

The 1996 Miami Dolphins season was the team's 31st as a member of the National Football League. The Dolphins failed to improve upon their previous season's output of 9–7, winning only eight games. The team failed to qualify for the postseason.

The Dolphins home field, previously known as Joe Robbie Stadium, was renamed on August 26 to Pro Player Park after naming rights were sold to Pro Player, an apparel brand by Fruit of the Loom.

However, in a rare move, the stadium was renamed again following the Dolphins’ opening contest at Pro Player Park. On September 10 before the Dolphins returned home in week 3, the stadium was renamed Pro Player Stadium, a name which would remain through the 2004 season.

1997 Miami Dolphins season

The 1997 Miami Dolphins season was the team's 32nd as a member of the National Football League. The Dolphins improved upon their previous season's output of 8–8, winning nine games. Seven of the team's sixteen games were decided by a field goal or less. This was also the season where the Dolphins released a new logo and new uniforms with a darker aqua and black drop shadow in numbers. The uniforms and logo lasted until the 2012 season.

2000 Denver Broncos season

The 2000 Denver Broncos season was the team's 41st year in professional football and its 31st with the National Football League. It also was the team's final year at the famous Mile High Stadium.

With running back Terrell Davis still struggling with injuries, Denver turned to rookie Mike Anderson, who had a successful rookie campaign and was named Offensive Rookie of the Year following the season.

2002 New England Patriots season

The 2002 New England Patriots season was the franchise's 33rd season in the National Football League, the 43rd overall and the 3rd under head coach Bill Belichick. They finished with a 9–7 record, good enough for second in the division but not a playoff berth. It was their first season at their new home field, Gillette Stadium, which replaced the adjacent Foxboro Stadium.

Following their victory in Super Bowl XXXVI seven months earlier, the Patriots played their first game in the new Gillette Stadium in the NFL's prime-time Monday Night Football opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers, a win for the Patriots. After an additional two wins to begin the season, including a 44–7 road win against the division rival New York Jets, the team lost five of its next seven games, allowing an average of 137 rushing yards a game during that span. In the final week of the season, the Patriots defeated the Miami Dolphins on an overtime Adam Vinatieri field goal to give both teams a 9–7 record. A few hours later, the Jets, who defeated the Patriots the week prior, also finished with a 9–7 record with a win over the Green Bay Packers. Due to their record against common opponents, after the Jets won the tiebreaker for the division title, both the Patriots and Dolphins were eliminated from the playoff contention. As of 2018 this is the last season the Patriots failed to win at least 10 games. It also marked the only time a Tom Brady-led Patriots team failed to win their division or make the playoffs.

2003 Miami Dolphins season

The 2003 Miami Dolphins season was the team's 38th overall, and 34th as a member of the National Football League. The Dolphins improved upon their previous season's output of 9–7, instead winning 10 games.

In Super Bowl XXXVI Harris made a crucial play, forcing a fumble by Rams receiver Ricky Proehl, which was recovered by teammate Terrell Buckley and returned to the Rams' 25-yard line, setting up the Patriots' only offensive touchdown of the game, a pass from Tom Brady to David Patten that brought the Patriots' lead to 14-3.

The Seminoles have achieved three undefeated seasons, finished ranked in the top four of the AP Poll for 14 straight years from 1987 through 2000 and completed 41 straight winning seasons from 1977 through 2017. The 1999 team received votes from ESPN as one of the top teams in college football history.The team has produced three Heisman Trophy winners: quarterbacks Charlie Ward in 1993, Chris Weinke in 2000 and Jameis Winston in 2013. The Biletnikoff Award, presented annually to the top receiver in college football, is named for Florida State hall of famer Fred Biletnikoff. Other awards won by Florida State players include the Walter Camp Award, the Maxwell Award, the Davey O'Brien Award, the Lombardi Award, the Dick Butkus Award, the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, the Lou Groza Award, the Dave Rimington Trophy and the Bobby Bowden Award. Florida State coaches have been honored with the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award, the Walter Camp Coach of the Year Award, the Home Depot Coach of the Year Award, the Broyles Award, and the Paul "Bear" Bryant Award. Many former Seminoles have gone on to have successful careers in the NFL.

The program has produced 219 All-Americans (45 consensus and 15 unanimous) and 250 professional players. Florida State has had six members inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, two members inducted into the College Football Coaches Hall of Fame and four members inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The Seminoles have the tenth-highest winning percentage among all college football programs in Division I FBS history with over 500 victories. Florida State has appeared in forty-eight postseason bowl games and rank ninth nationally for bowl winning percentage and fourth for bowl wins. The Seminoles' archrivals are Florida, whom they meet annually in the last game of the regular season, and Miami; both games are considered among the greatest rivalries in college football. A rivalry with Clemson has developed and grown due to both teams competing yearly for the ACC Atlantic division.

The team is coached by Willie Taggart and plays its home games at Bobby Bowden Field at Doak Campbell Stadium, currently the 18th largest stadium in college football and the 2nd largest in the ACC, located on-campus in Tallahassee, Florida.

Florida State Seminoles football statistical leaders

The Florida State Seminoles football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the Florida State Seminoles football program in various categories, including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Seminoles represent Florida State University in the NCAA's Atlantic Coast Conference.

Florida State began competing in intercollegiate football in 1947. This relatively recent start date means that, unlike many other teams, the Seminoles do not divide statistics into a "modern" era and a "pre-modern" era in which complete statistics are unavailable. Thus, all of the lists below potentially include players from as far back as 1947.

These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:

Since 1947, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.

The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.

Bowl games only began counting toward single-season and career statistics in 2002. The Seminoles have played in a bowl game every year since the decision, giving players an extra game to accumulate statistics each year since 2002.

Similarly, the Seminoles have played in the ACC Championship Game five times since it first occurred in 2005, giving players in those seasons an additional game to accumulate statistics.These lists are updated through the end of the 2017 season.

Jim Thorpe Award

The Jim Thorpe Award, named in memory of multi-sport athlete Jim Thorpe, has been awarded to the top defensive back in college football since 1986. It is voted on by the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame. In 2017, the award became sponsorsed by Paycom and was named the Paycom Jim Thorpe Award.
