Larry Key (born July 12, 1956 in Inverness, Florida) was a Canadian Football League running back for the British Columbia Lions from 1978 through 1982. He was an All-Star in 1979 and 1981.

Key was the first Florida State Seminoles player to rush for 1,000 yards when he gained 1,117 in 1977. His 97-yard run in a 1976 game against VPI is the record for the longest run ever by a Seminole. Key also set four kick return records and was the national leader in all-purpose yardage in 1977.[1] He was inducted into the FSU Football Hall of Fame in 1984.[2]
