56 – Clifford Charlton, LB (1984-87)

Clifford Tyrone Charlton of Tallahassee, Florida  played linebacker for Galen Hall from ’84 to ’87.

Not bad, considering the company he is in. His pass rushing and quarterback sacking skills were pivotal in the Gators posting 9-1-1 records in ’84 and ’85. He was first-team All-SEC in ’86 and ’87.
