Rashad Greene, meet Peter Warrick
By Corey Dowlar
TAMPA, Fla. -- Rashad Greene's 10-yard touchdown run in the first quarter had a lot more significance than what initially met the eye.
Rashad Greene has proven to be dynamic in many different ways on offense.
The sophomore wide receiver became the first player in school history to score a touchdown in three different ways during one season since Peter Warrick in 1999. Green has already returned two punts for touchdowns in 2012 and has one touchdown reception.
"I didn't know that," said Greene. "But I think it says a lot. Such a great guy like Peter Warrick, you know, that says a lot. That is an honor for me."
Warrick, regarded as one of the top wide receivers in Florida State history, recorded eight touchdowns receiving, three rushing and one on a punt return during that national championship season.
Greene's rushing score came in the first quarter with just under nine minutes left to put the Seminoles up 7-3 on USF. Florida State would never trail again after that point en route to a 30-17 win.
