Isaac Jason Hilliard played wide receiver for Steve Spurrier’s Florida Gators from 1994 to 1996. Alongside fellow receiving phenom Reidel Anthony, Ike was part of three SEC championship teams, including the 1996 season when both Ike and Reidel went over 1000 yards receiving to help the Gators win their first national championship. In 1996 he was a Consensus All American, and set three Sugar Bowl records against FSU: 150 receiving yards, an 82-yard touchdown catch, and a total of three touchdowns in one game. Ike went one pick after Reidel in the 1997 NFL Draft, to the New York Giants, where he was a member of the Super Bowl XXXV team. He was named to the Florida-Georgia Hall of Fame, and the University of Florida Athletic Association Hall of Fame. Ike finished his Gator career with 132 receptions, 2314 yards for 17.5 yards per reception and 29 touchdowns. He also has 7 kick returns for 233 yards.
