    #90 Huey Richardson, played defensive end for Galen Hall and Steve Spurrier from 1987 to 1990, and was regarded as one of the quickest players off the line. Richardson was a first-team All-Southeastern Conference (SEC) selection in 1989 and 1990, a first-team All-American in 1990, senior team captain in 1990, and SEC Academic Honor Roll all four years. Huey graduated in 1990 with a bachelor of arts degree in economics, and earned an NCAA post-graduate scholarship. At the end of his four years as a Gator, he totaled 26.5 quarterback sacks and 50.5 tackles for a loss, still third and fourth, respectively, on the Gators’ all-time record lists.

    He was a first round draft pick (#15) for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1991. Despite his great skills, he was not a good fit for the Steeler 3-4 defense and he did not adjust well to being moved from defensive end to inside linebacker. Between 1990 and 1992 he played for the Washington Redskins and the New York Jets before returning home to Atlanta.

    Huey returned to college and earned his master's degree in business administration from Emory University in Atlanta, and went on to become a financial advisor for Merrill Lynch. He was named to the University of Florida Athletic Association Hall of Fame in 2003.
