Willie Bouyer Willie Bouyer
Football and Track, 1969-72

Bouyer earned the distinction of being FSU's first football All-American with NAIA All-America Second-Team recognition in 1972 at defensive back. He was a two-time Bulldog MVP (1970 and 1971), a three-time All-NAIA District 23 pick (1970-72) and an NAIA All-America Honorable Mention choice in 1971. He presently ranks tied for sixth among FSU's career interception leaders with nine picks for 236 yards and a touchdown. He also holds the school record for best average per punt return in a season (20.5 yards).

The Detroit native signed a pro contract with the World Football League's Detroit Wheels in 1974 and joined brother, Corey (a 2000 Hall of Fame inductee), as Ferris' first brother combination to receive All-America accolades. In track, Bouyer competed in sprints, hurdles, long jump and triple jump. He helped lead the Bulldog indoor track team to 37-straight dual-meet wins, three consecutive unbeaten seasons and three straight NAIA District 23 Championships. He died on Feb. 1, 1977.
