Who Is This FL HS Legend? Jamie Dukes/Orlando Evans

Recommended Posts

After playing hs football at Orlando Evans, Jamie Dukes had an amazing career at FSU as one of the best o-linemen to ever wear garnet and gold.  In 1982, Dukes was named a first-team freshman All-American by Football News.  The following year,  Football News again acknowledged Dukes, conferring upon him an All-America honorable mention.  Dukes’ junior year of 1984 saw him collect second-team All-American honors for Football News.  In his senior year, Dukes cemented his FSU legacy, when, as a senior, he was a consensus All-American after being named a first-teamer by Walter Camp and the Football Writers Association of America, a second-team selection by the AP and UPI, and a third-teamer per Football News. Inexplicably, Dukes wasn’t drafted, but he proved doubters wrong by enjoying an 11-year NFL career, mostly with the Atlanta Falcons. He was inducted into the Florida State Hall of Fame in 1991.  In 2013, Dukes was named an ACC Legend.
