Ernest G. Green III (born June 28, 1975) is a former wide receiver for the Florida State Seminoles and Indianapolis Colts. He was born on June 28, 1975 in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.[1]

High schoolEdit

E.G. attended Fort Walton Beach High School. Along with quarterback and friend Danny Wuerffel, he led the Vikings to an undefeated season and a #2 national ranking by USA Today en route to the Florida AAAA state football championship in 1991.

CollegeEdit

E.G. went on to play for legendary coach Bobby Bowden at Florida State University. He redshirted during the 1993 National Championship year for the Seminoles. As a redshirt freshman in 1994, E.G. played in 11 games, catching 18 passes for 192 yards and one touchdown. During his sophomore year in 1995, E.G. emerged onto the national scene, catching 60 passes for 1007 yards and 10 touchdowns in 11 games. 1996 saw the emergence of a more run-oriented offense behind halfback Warrick Dunn, but E.G. pulled in 34 passes for 662 yards and 7 touchdowns in a year that saw the Seminoles play for the national title. In his senior year, E.G. cemented his place as one of college football's finest receivers with his second 1000 yard season. He ended 1997 with 54 catches for 1059 yards and 11 touchdowns, and was named a 2nd Team All-American by both the Associated Press and the Football News.

He left Florida State as the Seminoles' all-time leader in receiving touchdowns, with 29 in his career. And with 182 total points, he still stands at 13th on the all-time scoring list at FSU.

During his 5 years as a player from 1993–97, Florida State amassed a 56-6-1 record.

He was drafted by the Colts in the third round of the 1998 NFL Draft, and was the 71st overall pick.[2] He played in 12 games in 1998 and had 15 receptions for 177 yards (an 11.8 yards per reception average). He scored one touchdown. In 1999, he played in 11 games and had 21 receptions for 287 yards. He averaged 13.7 yards per reception but did not score any touchdowns that year.
