Spurrier was a three-sport letterman in high school, starring in football, basketball and baseball at Science Hill High School in Johnson City, Tennessee.[1] In three years as the starting pitcher for Science Hill, he never lost a game and led his team to two consecutive state baseball championships. He was an all-state selection in football, basketball and baseball, and a prep All-American quarterback.

After graduating from Science Hill, Spurrier played quarterback for coach Ray Graves at the University of Florida,[1] where he won the Heisman Trophy in 1966.[2] In addition to being a stellar passer, he gained notoriety by waving off the starting place-kicker and booting a 40-yard field goal to defeat Auburn 30–27 in a key game during his senior season.[2] Spurrier finished his three-year, 31-game career as Florida's starting quarterback having completed 392 of 692 attempts, with 4,848 passing yards, 37 touchdowns and 442 yards rushing. In addition to winning the Heisman, he was selected as a first-team All-American in 1965 and 1966.
