  • More Than 10 Consecutive Hours of Florida State Football and Men’s Basketball Games and Ward Content

ACC Network (ACCN), the 24/7 national platform dedicated to ACC sports, will celebrate two-sport phenom Charlie Ward’s illustrious football and basketball career with a five-game marathon from his collegiate years at Florida State on Saturday, Aug. 15.

The ACC Legends: Charlie Ward line-up will feature more than 10 consecutive hours of classic Ward performances and content beginning at 11:30 a.m. ET. The block of games includes the following Florida State football and basketball wins:

Noon | CFB: Florida State at Georgia Tech (Oct. 17, 1992)

Florida State used a furious, late comeback that saw the birth of the shotgun, no-huddle offense, highlighted by Ward completing 14 of his 19 passes for 137 yards in the fourth quarter to defeat Georgia Tech, 29-24. With the win, the ‘Noles moved closer to an ACC Championship in their first year of membership.

2 p.m. | CBB: Duke at Florida State (Jan. 24, 1993)

Byron Wells’ 3-pointer with just a few seconds to play lifted Florida State over Duke, 89-88, giving the Seminoles their first win over the Blue Devils. Ward, Florida State’s all-time leader in steals, totaled five for the game, including one at the end of regulation and overtime to secure the win.

4 p.m. | CFB: Miami at Florida State (Oct. 9, 1993)

After two heartbreaking losses to Miami in 1991 and 1992 – “Wide Right I” and “Wide Right II”, Ward led Florida State to a 28-10 win over the Hurricanes. Ward had 256 pass yards, a passing score and a rushing score in the victory.

6 p.m. | CFB: Florida State at Florida (Nov. 27, 1993)

Ward threw for a career-high 446 yards, including a 79-yard touchdown pass to Warrick Dunn with 5:28 remaining as the Seminoles defeated No. 7 Florida, 33-21, ending the Gators’ 23-game home winning streak under Steve Spurrier. The win led Florida State to the national title game vs. Nebraska.

8 p.m. | CBB: Florida State at Georgia Tech (Jan. 29, 1994)

Ward stuffed the stat sheet with 11 points, four rebounds, six assists and four steals as the Seminoles won at Georgia Tech, 74-73.

The Legend of Charlie Ward

Additionally, ACCN will air The Legend of Charlie Ward at 11:30 a.m., leading into the five-game marathon. Dalen Cuff will host the half-hour program that will feature interviews with Ward, his former Seminole teammate Warrick Dunn, and former Florida State offensive coordinator Mark Richt.

Ward: A Two-Sport Collegiate Phenom  

Considered one of the best two-sport collegiate athletes of all-time, Ward played both football and basketball during his time at Florida State. Ward led the FSU football team to the 1993 national championship and also won the Heisman Trophy, Maxwell and Davey O’Brien Awards that same season. As the starting point guard on the men’s basketball team, he helped the Seminoles to the 1991 Metro Tournament Championship, a NCAA Sweet 16 appearance in 1992 and the Elite Eight in 1993. Ward won the ACC’s McKevlin Award, going to the ACC’s top overall male athlete, back-to-back years in 1993 and 1994, and also became only the second football player in history to win the prestigious Sullivan Award in 1993 as the most outstanding amateur athlete in the United States.

Ward was drafted 26th overall by the New York Knicks in the 1994 NBA Draft and went on to a 11-year professional career, including nine full seasons with the Knicks. He is the only Heisman Trophy winner to play in the NBA. Notably, while not playing an inning of collegiate baseball, Ward was drafted in both the 1993 and 1994 MLB June Amateur Drafts.

ACC Legends

The ACC Legends series on ACCN highlights the careers of former ACC athletes across all sports. The series has featured marathons with former North Carolina basketball player Vince Carter and former Duke women’s basketball star Alana Beard. Additional ACC Legends programming marathons will be announced at a later date.
