Running back Warrick Dunn Comes in at No. 9 as we continue our countdown of the Top-75 players in Florida State history. Dunn is without a doubt the best running back in Florida State history. He was a four-year contributor and a three-year starter at Florida State. Dunn holds the record for most yards in a single season by a Florida State running back with 1,242 yards in 1995. All three of his single season rushing totals are in the Top-6 in Florida State history. Dunn is the career leader for rushing yards in Florida State history with 3,959. He is second in career touchdowns with 37. He averaged 6.9 yards per carry throughout his career.

Dunn was also a prolific receiver out of the back field. He finished his career with 1,314 yards and 12 receiving touchdowns. He was named a first team All-ACC member in each of his final three years and was named to multiple All-American teams as well. He was inducted into the Florida State football Hall of Fame in 2002.

Dunn was drafted with the 12th overall pick in the 1997 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Dunn played in the NFL for 12 years and was named the NFL offensive rookie of the year in 1997. He was selected to three Pro-Bowls and has been named "Man of the Year" by multiple awards.

Dunn is one of the most charitable people in all of sports. His charity, Homes for the Hollidays, has helped 143 single parents afford houses since 1997.
