On August 26, 2022, Destin High School’s new Head Football Coach, E.G. Green, was inducted into the Florida State University Athletics 2022 Hall of Fame Class. He was one of 11 new members honored that night and was joined at the ceremony by DHS Athletic Director Phil Dorn.

The new inductees are some of the most talented and decorated athletes in FSU history, including two FSU football greats and record-setting wide receivers: E.G. Green and Marvin “Snoop” Minnis, professional golf star Brooks Koepka, tennis star Jean-Yves Aubone, soccer greats: midfielder Amanda DaCosta and defender Toni Pressley, nine-time ACC champion swimmer Emma Dutton, baseball outfielder and national player of the year James Ramsey, All-America volleyball player Jekaterina Stepanova, All-ACC basketball great Tim Pickett and Moore Stone Award winners: Lawton and Beth Langford.


Coach Green and Minnis are regarded as two of the most prolific receivers in the history of FSU football. E.G. Green signed with the Seminoles out of Fort Walton Beach High School and became a four-year letterman and three-year starter while imprinting his name all over the FSU receiver records, including the school record for career receiving touchdowns.

After redshirting in 1993 as a true freshman during Florida State’s first national championship season, Green played in 45 games with 35 starts, including 34 consecutive, over his hall of fame career with the Seminoles. Over that span, he set the school record (since broken) with 29 touchdowns on 166 receptions for 2,920 yards.

Green’s 29 receiving touchdowns broke Florida State’s career record that had stood for 25 years, and the total still ranks as the second-most in program history. His 2,920 receiving yards were the second-highest career total for a Seminole at the time and still ranked fourth when he was inducted, while his 166 receptions were third and currently rank sixth on FSU’s all-time list. He made at least one catch in 39 straight games and was a three-time All-ACC selection and second-team All-American his senior year when he caught 54 passes for 1,059 yards and 11 touchdowns. At the time, both his receiving yards and touchdown totals were fourth on FSU’s single-season lists. His sophomore season featured a career-best 60 receptions, the eighth-highest single-season total by an FSU receiver at that time, for 1,007 yards and 10 touchdowns.

After his FSU career, he was a third-round pick by the Indianapolis Colts in the 1998 NFL Draft and spent three seasons playing professionally. Destin High School is honored to have E.G. Green as the first Head Football Coach in school history!
