Burt "Buddy" Reynolds began his Florida State football career with a 33-yard pass reception against the Georgia Bulldogs as a freshman in 1954. A knee injury forced him from the lineup in mid-season and he missed the entire 1955 season following surgery. He returned to Florida State in 1957 but once again was sidelined by injury, ending a promising career. He went on to become one of the most successful actors in box office history earning an Academy Award nomination in 1999. For years he has hosted a segment of the Bobby Bowden Show along with close friend Gene Deckerhoff. Reynolds has remained an ardent supporter of Seminole athletics and the entire university.
