    FSU Player Focus: Greg Carr

    There is no doubt that Carr is a gifted athlete who can snag passes. The only criticism that I would have of him is that he is not showing the physical toughness that I think is needed. Last week he dropped two crucial passes in the Maryland game. All in all, he has tremendous upside potential. Already this year he has 8 TDs to lead all receivers.

    At Florida State: An second-team All-ACC selection as a true freshman in 2005, he scored the most touchdowns by a first-year player (nine) since former Seminole tailback Warrick Dunn scored ten times during the 1993 season...tied former Virginia tight end Heath Miller's ACC record for receiving touchdowns by a freshman...named a third-team freshman All-American and first-team freshman All-ACC by The Sporting News...led the conference in touchdown receptions and ranked sixth with 59.3 receiving yards per game...worked exclusively with the first-team during spring practice in 2006 while senior Chris Davis nursed a shoulder injury and was named Most Dependable Wide Receiver by the coaching staff.

    Freshman Year (2005): Led all Florida State receivers in yards per reception (20.6) and receiving touchdowns (9), while placing second yards per game (51.3) and third in receiving yards (618)...his 30 receptions were good for fifth-best on the team and were the most by any freshman...of his 30 catches, 23 of them went for first downs or touchdowns and 13 of them netted 20 yards or more...caught seven passes longer than 35 yards (37, 38, 38, 40, 45, 54, 63), including his season-best 63-yard catch against Wake Forest...had the first two 100-yard receiving games of his career in wins over The Citadel (104) and Wake Forest (129)...had a season-high six catches and three touchdowns in FSU's 55-24 victory at Duke...had more than one touchdown in wins over The Citadel (2), Boston College (2) and Duke (3)...FSU was undefeated (5-0) in games that he caught a touchdown pass...used his height and impressive leaping ability to become a force in the red zone, catching six touchdown passes inside the 20-yard line...recorded four catches for 78 yards in the team's ACC Championship victory over Virginia Tech.

    High School: Originally signed with Florida State in 2004 but did not enroll until January of of three players to enroll early (Emmanuel Dunbar and Anthony Kelly)...rated a four-star player by as a senior at North Marion High School and the No. 21 rated wide receiver in the nation...earned first team all-state honors in Class 3A as a junior and senior...recorded 42 catches for 1,142 yards and 13 touchdowns as a senior...a two-sport athlete who also played basketball at North Marion and earned first team 3A all-state honors on the basketball court as well during his senior year...worked out with the FSU basketball team in the spring of 6-6, he is believed to be the tallest receiver to play at Florida State
