Devin Hester has made this list. more than any other Miami Hurricane. In three seasons as the return man for UM, Hester was a human highlight reel and ended his career with two kickoff returns for touchdowns and two punt returns for touchdowns.

In his last year as a Hurricane during the 2005 season, the Duke Blue Devils were in town at the Orange Bowl. Ranked 9th in the nation, Miami did what they were supposed to do and took care of business, eventually winning 52-7.

Hester had the highlight of the game.

Yes it may have not counted because of a flag on the play, but I remember sitting in the OB that day as a 10-year old fan and I couldn’t believe my eyes.

GO CANES!
