Countdown to kickoff: #20 Dorian Munroe

#20 Player/Hometown/High School: Dorian Munroe Maimi (Fla.) Coral Reef

Hgt/Wgt: 5-foot-11, 205-lb Position: Strong safety Year: SR

Others who wore the number: Christopher Scott (2008), Joe Cohen (2003-06), Anthony Gay (2005), DeShawn Wynn (2002), Robert Gillespie (1998-2001), Vannez Gooch (1998), Eric Anderson (1982), Tim Groves (1978-1980), Robert Morgan (1974-76), Vince Kendrick (1971-73), Guy McTheny (1968-69), Jimmy Jordan (1964-65) and Hagood Clarke (1961-63)
