Florida State in the CFL/AFL

Kenny Shaw

Unless you have been living under a rock, most football fans know that Florida State produces elite talent to the NFL often. From 2013-2015 Florida State broke the modern NFL draft record with 29 players selected in a 3-year span. But what about the players that come to Florida State that do not make the NFL? The great thing about football in North America is that there are alternative ways to make a living playing football or trying to get a chance for the NFL. The two alternative leagues would be The Canadian Football League and the Arena Football League. If you are as football thirsty as I am in the summer, this gives you a great chance to keep up with former Noles, while their professional seasons are in the thick of things. So below is a list of former Noles who are currently playing in one of these two professional leagues.

Arena Football League

  • Greg Carr WR Orlando Predators
  • Greg Reid DB Jax Sharks
  • Geneath Moffett DL Jax Sharks
  • Clevan “Cookie” Thomas DB LA Kiss (AFL Household Name)

Canadian Football League

  • Kenny Shaw WR Toronto
  • Patrick Watkins DB Edmonton
