22. Steve Spurrier (Florida)
Long before he (famously or infamously) became the “head ball coach” at the University of Florida, Stephen Orr Spurrier was a talented, multi-sport star who turned down basketball scholarships so he could play football for coach Ray Graves and the University of Florida.
By the time he left Gainesville, he was considered by local publications to be one of the two greatest players in the first century of the school’s football program. Before he coached a Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback of his own, Spurrier won the award in 1966, the second-straight year he was also named an All-American.
