Peter Warrick at Creekside H.S. in Georgia
Many a Florida State fan will tell you that WR Peter Warrick remains the most physically gifted wideout ever to suit up for the Seminoles.
The Bradenton, FL, native was a two-time First Team All-American and three-time First Team All-ACC performer, leaving his mark in Tallahassee as both a pass-catcher and punt returner. He ended his career by torching Virginia Tech for three touchdowns and earning MVP honors in the 2000 Sugar Bowl.
Warrick was selected fourth overall by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2000 NFL Draft but was robbed of much of his speed and skill by an injury that sidelined him for much of 2004. It kicked off a journeyman pro football career that saw him suit up for teams in six different leagues before his retirement in 2011.
Now 36, Warrick is the wide receivers coach at Creekside High School in Fairburn, GA, having previously served in the same capacity at his alma mater, Bradenton’s Southeast High.
Florida State attempts to capture its first national title since Warrick’s 1999 squad when it faces Auburn in Pasadena on Monday night.
