2015 Inductees:

Jabar Gaffney

A native of Jacksonville, Jabar Gaffney starred at Raines High School and caught the eye of head coach Steve Spurrier.  Playing two seasons at Florida, Gaffney made his mark on the program – first with a memorable touchdown catch to beat Tennessee with 14 seconds left that propelled the Gators to the SEC title game in 2000.  His solid play as a freshman garnered SEC Freshman Player of the Year honors.  A first team All-SEC selection both years, he was also named a first team All-America selection following the 2001 season while earning the Paul Warfield Award for being the nation’s most outstanding wide receiver and being named MVP by his teammates.  A second round pick by the New England Patriots in the 2002 NFL Draft, he played 11 seasons in the NFL, making two trips to the playoffs and played in Super Bowl XLII.


Chris Leak

A four-year starter at quarterback and former top-ranked recruit, Chris Leak led the Gators return to national prominence.  A two-time team captain, he led the Gators to the SEC Championship game in 2006 and followed it up with the 2007 BCS National Championship.  Named to the SEC All-Freshman team, Leak went on to star for the Gators and left as the school’s all-time leader in passing yards (11,213).  Along with being an exceptional athlete, Leak also excelled in the classroom. Listed on the SEC Academic Honor Roll each year he attended Florida, he then graduated with honors in December of 2006. After a stint on the Gators coaching staff, Leak joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers staff this year.

Richard Seymour

One of the top defensive linemen ever at Georgia, Richard Seymour was a four-year letter-winner, earning all-SEC honors twice and earned All-America honors his senior season.  A first round pick by the New England Patriots in the 2001 NFL Draft, he was an anchor of the great Patriots dynasty that won three Super Bowls in four years, highlighting a 12-year career that led to seven Pro Bowl selections.  He was also selected to the Patriots 50th anniversary team and the NFL All-2000s decade team.


Rex Robinson

A highly recruited kicker out of high school, Rex Robinson chose the Bulldogs and would be put to work quickly.  A star all four years, he earned recognition on the All-SEC Freshman team after being the team’s leading scorer and then was selected first team All-SEC his final three years.  His stellar play was recognized during Georgia’s magical 1980 national championship season, earning All-America honors his senior season.  Following his collegiate career, Robinson kicked one season for the New England Patriots in 1982.
