    #19 Isaac Jason Hilliard of Patterson, Louisiana played wide receiver for Steve Spurrier’s Florida Gators from 1994 to 1996. Alongside fellow receiving phenom Reidel Anthony, Ike was part of three SEC championship teams, including the 1996 season when both Ike and Reidel went over 1,000 yards receiving to help the Gators win their first national championship. In 1996 he was a Consensus All American, and set three Sugar Bowl records against FSU: 150 receiving yards, an 82-yard touchdown catch, and a total of three touchdowns in one game. Ike finished his Gator career with 132 receptions, 2314 yards for 17.5 yards per reception and 29 touchdowns. He also has 7 kick returns for 233 yards.

    Ike went one pick after Reidel in the first round of the 1997 NFL Draft, to the New York Giants where he was a member of the Super Bowl XXXV team. He played for the New York Giants and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers until 2008 before getting into coaching. Ike coached wide receivers for the Florida Tuskers, Miami Dolphins, Washington Redskins, and Buffalo Bills before returning to the Redskins in 2014. He was named to the Florida-Georgia Hall of Fame, and the University of Florida Athletic Association Hall of Fame.

    Honorable mention: #20 Thomas "Tony" Jerome Lomack of Tallahassee, Florida was a rare standout on some pretty bad Gator teams that were decimated by NCAA sanctions. n those days, Emmitt Smith and Willie McClendon carried the entire offense, often without knowing which quarterback would be under center--Kyle Morris, Donald Douglas, or Lex Smith. Tony accrued over 1600 all purpose yards as receiver, running back, kick returner, and punt returner, and was a 9th round draft pick for the Los Angeles Rams in 1990.
