When you win the Heisman and Davey O’Brien Award (top quarterback in the country) and then don’t go pro in that sport, odds are you’re a phenomenal athlete. Charlie Ward can claim that distinction, in fact he’s the only person who’s ever existed who’s won a Heisman Trophy and then gone on to play in the NBA. Though he’s long since graduated, and FSU has added an additional two National Titles to the side of their stadium, Ward can still hold his head high as the quarterback who captained the team that did it first.
Oh, plus he’s still the basketball program’s all-time leader in steals.
