Fun Fact Friday: Terry is FSU’s First 1,000-Yard Receiver Since 2014

There is plenty of speculation that redshirt sophomore wide receiver Tamorrion Terry will forgo his junior year at Florida State and enter the 2020 NFL Draft, but if this was the Georgia native’s final season, he managed to go out with a bang.

With game-highs of seven receptions for 131 yards in Saturday’s 40-17 loss at rival Florida, Terry became the first FSU player since Rashad Greene in 2014 to eclipse the 1,000-yard mark receiving and one of just 13 Seminoles ever to do so. For the year, Terry has 51 catches for 1,023 yards and eight touchdowns — all team-highs.

Terry is tied for second in the ACC in receiving yards and sixth in touchdown receptions. Barring something unfathomable, Terry will lead the Seminoles in receiving for the second straight season.

With 16 touchdown grabs for his career, Terry ranks 19th all-time at Florida State. With 1,767 yards receiving, Terry is 23 receiving yards shy of moving into the top 20 all-time in receiving at FSU and 144 yards from moving into the top 15. Among players currently in the top 25 all-time in receiving at FSU, Terry’s 20.5 yards per catch average is the best.

Terry has not yet made a decision on whether to stay for 2020, but most believe he’ll be suiting up on Sundays next season. Although Florida State has gone just 11-13 in the two years since his redshirt season, Terry has certainly made his mark.

Terry however, wasn’t the only FSU player to hit a mark not touched in five years on Saturday. Junior safety Hamsah Nasirildeen tallied five tackles before leaving with an apparent serious leg injury to become the first Seminole to record 100 total tackles in a season since Reggie Northrup tallied 122 total stops five years ago.
