Victor R. "Vic" Miranda was a college football player and insurance executive.[1] He was a two-way lineman for coaches Bob Woodruff and Ray Graves' Florida Gators football teams.[2] A native of Miami,[3] Miranda faced assault charges as a freshman.[4] Miranda was selected All-SEC and AP Honorable Mention All-America in 1960,[5][6] a year in which his defense helped spark the Gators to a defeat of Baylor in the Gator Bowl.[7] The Gators halted a 75-yard drive by Baylor on the half-yard line in the first quarter, setting the stage for two second quarter touchdowns.[8] Larry Libertore was the game's MVP. Miranda also won the school's coveted Fergie Ferguson Award.[9] He was inducted into the University of Florida Athletics Hall of Fame as a "Gator Great." Miranda was also a prominent booster for the Gators program, once president of boosters.[10]
