Inscription.  
Regarded as the best defensive end in Gator history, Youngblood was named to the All-SEC Team for the decade of the 1970’s. He was a rugged competitor who went on to become an All-Pro star with the Los Angeles Rams after being a first-round draft selection in 1971. Youngblood participated in the 1971 Senior Bowel and was chosen as the event’s most outstanding player. After leading the team with 66 tackles in 1969, he made All-America the following season. Youngblood was an NFL All-Pro in 1974, 1975, 1976, 1978 and 1979. He was enshrined into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1992 and became the first player from Florida to be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2001.
