Homecoming SodTalk Legends are Sam Cowart and Jesse Solomon, Saturday at 11 a.m.

SodTalk for the Homecoming Saturday FSU/Delaware State game will feature two NFL veteran Seminole linebackers, Sam Cowart and Jesse Solomon. SodTalk begins at 11 a.m. at the Sod Cemetery, located between the Bobby Bowden Statue and Dick Howser Baseball Stadium. The SodTalk Legends will be available for autographs at 10:30 a.m. Kickoff is at Noon.

Jacksonville’s Sam Cowart was an NCAA Consensus All American linebacker and the Football News National Defensive Player of the Year for the Seminoles in 1997. He was an 8 year NFL veteran and All Pro with the Bills, Jets, and Vikings. He is the owner of a fashion clothing store in Jacksonville.

Jesse Solomon was a defensive leader for Bobby Bowden’s 1983-1985 bowl teams. He was late round NFL draft pick, but took that opportunity to earn a 10 year successful playing career at linebacker for the Vikings, Cowboys, Bucs, Falcons and Dolphins. He is President of the Athletes Care Association, a charitable organization.

The Sod Cemetery is located between the Bobby Bowden Statue and Dick Howser Stadium.

SodTalk Legends and friends, Hello! I wanted to share with you a new link to wonderful work prepared by our FSU Hall of Fame Committee Historian, Bob Peronne.

On the link below, you can choose any of our 105 Sod Game Victories and then click the date. You will see a detailed game summary and game statistics. "Stats don't lie" and you Legends did pretty well for us!

We hope to have this information soon linked on Seminoles.com and SeminoleBoosters.com so that our fans and former players can see it, too.

Bob's volunteer website, nolefan.org, has amazing game summaries, team stats, box scores, articles, and all of your individual statistics, if you have never visited it.

Thanks to Bob! And when you come for any home games, let me know in advance, and come by the Sod Cemetery so that I can give you a Shout Out at SodTalk, 90 minutes before all home games.

Visit NoleFan.org

Regards,
Doug
