70 – Cooper Carlisle, T (1995-99)

Cooper Morrison Carlisle of Greenville, Mississippi, was a tackle on Steve Spurrier‘s Florida Gators from 1995 to 1999. Although he was redshirted his freshman season in 1995, Carlisle did a great job protecting Danny Wuerffel’s blindside during the 1996 national championship season. He must have done something right, because Danny won Florida a national championship and a Heisman Trophy. He was team captain his senior season, and first team All-American. Cooper was on the SEC Academic Honor Roll all four years, and earned his bachelor’s degree in 1999 before heading off to the NFL.
