TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- On Thursday, former Florida State football player and acting legend Burt Reynolds died of a heart attack at the age of 82.

Reynolds played three seasons for the Seminoles, turning in 134 yards on 16 touches and two touchdowns in his 1954 season before suffering a knee injury that he was never really able to come back from.

But, as we all know, the story doesn't end there.

Reynolds went on to have a prolific acting career, one which IMDb gives him 168 credits for.

Reynolds was nominated for the 1998 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his work in the movie Boogie Nights.

The video above was taken this past summer at a Valdosta film festival. In it, Reynolds talks about his time at FSU and what the university means to him.
