1983 Florida State Signees/Newcomers

From the 1983 FSU Football Media Guide, page 38.

Louis Berry, 6-0, 180, P, Panama City - Booted for a 42.4 average during his senior season while using a rare one-step technique...should challenge immediately for the starting job at FSU...punts the ball extremely high...earned all-state honors and is one of three Mosley products to ink with the Seminoles...father was an assistant coach at Southern Miss while his uncle is John James, former Atlanta Falcon punter.

J.P. Connolly, 6-0, 180, QB, Oakdale, NY - Originally caught the eye of Bobby Bowden when he was in high school...spent last year in a prep school where he threw for 1,462 yards and 13 touchdowns...in two years as a high school quarterback threw for 2,800 yards and 23 touchdowns...was coached by his father at Connetquot High School.

Herb Gainer, 6-2, 180, WR, Sarasota - This talented receiver earned All-South and Class 4-A all-state honors...considered one of the two best receivers in state...member of the Florida "Sweet 16" team...could play offense or defense...recruited by all the biggies, including Penn State, Michigan, Pittsburgh and Ohio State.

Bruce Heggie, 6-4, 235, OLB, Saint Louis, MO - First team all-stater who was approached by over 45 major colleges...big yet mobile and could help early...speed is 4.7 in the 40 yards...bench presses 370 pounds...captain of high school team and good student...also played basketball.

Darrin Holloman, 5-7, 165, RB, Tallahassee - The exploits of Holloman are well-known in Tallahassee...established a state record when he rushed for 435 yards in 20 carries against Gonzalez Tate enroute to a 3,000-yard all-purpose performance last year...4.6 speed in the 40 helped him to an average of over 11 yards per carry as a senior...scored 32 touchdowns...could find himself with duties as FSU's punt returner...All-South and Coaches All-American team...will enroll in the Air Force ROTC program and aspires to be a pilot.

Fred Jones, 6-3, 225, LB, Miami - Although just a second team all-state pick, recruiting "experts" in the South have him rated as one of the top linebackers...made Bill Buchalter's "Sweet 16" list...teammate of incoming freshman Pablo Lopez...could contribute early.

Pablo Lopez, 6-6, 245, OL, Miami - Highly recruited offensive lineman who was contacted by most of the nation's powers...Georgia and Alabama were among his final picks...all-state and All-South honors...also named to several All-American teams, including Adidas.

Eric Mangham, 5-10, 165, QB-DB, Atlanta, GA - On Georgia's 2-A all-state team as the quarterback...probably figures more in FSU's defensive secondary...as a defensive back in high school had a school record nine interceptions...one Atlanta TV station tabbed him as its prep Player of the Year...standout sprinter and excellent student.

Grady Martin, 6-3, 245, DL, Orlando - Because he played a new position as a senior (linebacker), Martin's post season honors were few...right now coaches think he could contribute on either side of the line...had 66 solo tackles and 77 assists for 138 as a senior...also had four interceptions and scored a touchdown...punted for a 41.8 average.

Martin Mayhew, 5-8, 164, DB, Tallahassee - The only freshman to attend spring drills early...got hurt the first week of drills but was able to participate for most of the sessions...described by defensive coordinator Jack Stanton as "making progress that a typical freshman would make"...good speed makes up for his lack of size...a tough hitter...first team all-state and three-year starter.

Danny McManus, 6-1, 180, QB, Hollywood - Rated as one of the top two quarterbacks in the state...passed for 1,400 yards as a senior and his two-year total was 2,700...in one game passed for 413 yards...All-Broward County...recruited by Michigan State, Temple and Pitt.

Cleveland McNabb, 6-1, 179, DB, Fort Walton Beach - Earned second team 4-A honors as a defensive back...also served as Choctaw's punter and averaged 41 yards per kick...MVP of his high school team.

Orlando Miles, 6-1, 210, LB, Birmingham, AL - Strong and quick player with necessary ingredients to play linebacker...runs a 4.6 40 and bench presses 350 pounds...has played tailback, fullback and center...Adidas honorable mention All-America.

Greg Newell, 5-11, 195, DB, Panama City - One of three Mosley products to sign with the Seminoles...earned third team 3-A honors as a defensive back...also played some at receiver...member of the National Honor Society and Fellowship of Christian Athletes organizations.

John Ricciardi, 6-3, 185, DB, Jacksonville - Talented all-around athlete...made the state honor roll as a defensive back...will add considerable size to the secondary...participant in the decathlon in high school and has pole vaulted just under 15-0 and long jumped 23-1...had a knee operation several months back to repair damaged cartliage...will room with fellow signee and long-time friend Chuck Wells.

Ulysses Roberson, 6-4, 215, LB, Auburndale - Went virtually unnoticed by recruiters until late in his senior season...he was noticed enough to earn AAA all-state honors as an offensive lineman...headed the Orlando Sentinel's central Florida team as linebacker...could help early.

Dave Schrenker, 6-3, 245, OL, Panama City - Versatile lineman who completes the trio of Mosley graduates to sign with FSU...center looks to be his natural position...reaped first team all-state honors as an offensive lineman...Bay County Player of the Year in 1982.

Roosevelt Snipes, 5-9, 172, RB, Sarasota - Originally signed with Florida State out of Sarasota High School in 1981...coaches feel this one will play right away...rushed for more than 1,000 yards and averaged 10 yards per carry...Oklahoma was the loser in the battle for Snipes...also finished in top three at J.C. 100-meter dash and runs a 4.4 40 yards...will have three years of eligibility remaining...his first duties could be in the return area.

Eric Stiehl, 6-5, 225, OLB, Neptune Beach - Played his way onto the Florida Times Union's Top 24 team as a defensive end...as a junior, graded out at 81 percent...a broken knee cap suffered while playing basketball shortened his senior season...will be just 17 when he puts an FSU jersey on this fall...great growth potential.

Shawn Thomas, 6-4, 260, DL, Columbus, OH - Comes from the same high school that FSU plucked linebacker Stuart Wyatt out of last year...most recruiting observers didn't notice him at first but now they're calling him a sleeper...picked FSU over Purdue, Maryland, Tennessee and Wisconsin...averaged 10 tackles a game as a senior on his way to honorable mention all-state honors.

Terry Warren, 6-1, 210, OLB, Tallahassee - Played linebacker as a senior at Leon High School and as a junior at Titusville Astronaut...has size and speed to play several different positions on the defense...brother Scott was a former defensive standout who played on 11-0 team of 1979 that went to the Orange Bowl...former FSU ball boy.

Chuck Wells, 6-0, 200, DB, Jacksonville - Rated as one of the top 24 prospects in the Jacksonville area...was one of the state's premier triple jumpers...attended FSU's football camp last summer and made a big impression on Seminole coaches...all-state performer for Orange Park.

Gaylon White, 6-1, 210, LB-TE, Atlanta, GA - Two-year all-state selection at linebacker but is also a highly touted tight end where FSU coaches may use him...Atlanta Journal-Constitution Back of the Year as a senior...rushed for 400 yards and 12 TDs at fullback and caught 52 passes as a senior...made 126 tackles...highly recruited by most major colleges, including Georgia, Clemson and Alabama...member of Street and Smith's top 100 list...coached by Thurston Taylor, a former Seminole player in the '60s.

Randy White, 6-0, 165, DB-WR, Marianna - Although listed as a defensive back, Randy will get a shot at wide receiver...earned first team all-state honors after catching 45 passes for 1,006 yards as a senior.

Eric Williams, 5-9, 175, WR-DB, Clearwater - Caught 30 passes as a senior for 905 yards and 12 touchdowns...like Randy White, he'll probably get a look at as a wide receiver but coaches recruited him to help in the defensive backfield...had 11 interceptions as a senior defensive back...third team all-state.
