Taylor Houser Jacobs was a blazing fast wide receiver for Steve Spurrier‘s and Ron Zook‘s Florida Gators from 1999 to 2002, and was a star member of the men’s track team all four years. As the only true freshman receiver, he earned a starting role on a squad featuring Reche Caldwell and Jabar Gaffney. As a junior he made 10 receptions for 170 yards (UF bowl record) and was the MVP of Steve Spurrier’s last game, the 56-23 2002 Orange Bowl victory over Maryland. Taylor continued to excel as a senior when he was named team captain, first team All SEC squad, and finalist for the Biletnikoff Award. Taylor finished his career with 133 receptions, 2098 yards, 16 TDs. He would go on to play for Spurrier in the NFL.

Bonus trivia: Taylor was named an All American in track and field in 2002.
