Florida State is retiring Marvin Jones' No. 55

One of the best linebackers in college football is finally getting one of the highest honors from Florida State. FSU Director of Athletics Stan Wilcox announced Monday that the No. 55 jersey worn by linebacker Marvin Jones will be retired by the team on Oct. 10 when the Seminoles take on the Hurricanes.

While at Florida State, Jones was a two-time consensus All-American, a Butkus and Lombardi winner and finished fourth in voting for the 1992 Hesiman Trophy. Head coach Jimbo Fisher was a big reason for why the team is doing this now.

"There simply wasn't a better defensive player in college football than Marvin Jones during his time at Florida State," Fisher said in a statement. "He was a leader and dominant playmaker for some all-time great Seminoles teams. Look at all his accomplishments: winning the Butkus, winning the Lombardi and finishing fourth in the voting for the Heisman. He had an incredible career and we are honored to retire his jersey this season."

Jones took to Twitter to thank Fisher and the school for this honor.
