Jimmy Dewayne DuBose played fullback for Doug Dickey‘s Florida Gators from 1972 to 1975, where he had the perfect build for a fullback with the agility of a tailback. In Dickey’s run-oriented offense, he once ran 180 yards against Vanderbilt and 204 yards against FSU. Jimmy rushed for 1,307 yards as a senior in 1975, which is third-best for a season total behind two of Emmitt Smith‘s years. Jimmy was a first-team All-SEC selection, the SEC Player of the Year, an All-American, 6th in Heisman voting, and Fergie Ferguson Award winner. He finished his career with 2159 yards rushing (5.7 YPA, 10 TD), which is currently 10th all time for the Gators. Jimmy was second-round draft pick for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he played from 1976 to 1978 until his career was cut short by injury. He was inducted into the University of Florida Athletic Hall of Fame as a Gator Great in 1987.
