    Brooks In Attendance For Spring Practice: Day 7

    FSU Sports Information Excerpts:
    The sidelines of Friday's Florida State football's Friday practice were packed with high school coaches as the Seminoles held a 20-period practice during coaching clinic. The team was only in shells but there was plenty of hitting with large audiences gathered around every drill.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneer and one of FSU's all-time greats Derrick Brooks was out at practice after addressing the crowd at the coach's clinic.

    Practice began with punting and then the squad broke into position groups. The entire team then came together for 3-on-3.

    In 1-on-1 Greg Carr had three catches, one of which went for a touchdown. Dionte Allen broke up a pass, Ochuko Jenije picked off a pass and Tony Carter locked down receivers so completely on two routes that the QB's didn't even attempt to make a throw.

    Pass rush was especially spirited despite the fact the players were just in shells. Helmets were being knocked off on almost every play. The offensive linemen had a great drill. Evan Bellamy, Ryan McMahon, Will Furlong and Daron Rose all won multiple match-ups. Rodney Hudson and Antwane Greenlee also picked up wins. For the defense Budd Thacker, Justin Mincey and Emmanuel Dunbar won a couple battles each while Benjamin Lampkin, Everette Brown and Paul Griffin also picked up wins.

    Skeleton was run in down and distance and Bert Reed put on a show. The redshirt freshman caught three passes from Christian Ponder. One was a juggling catch with Allen draped on his back and another was a one-handed stab on a ball thrown high and behind him. D'Vontrey Richardson threw a deep TD pass to Taiwan Easterling. For the defense Korey Mangum had a break up, Jamie Robinson had a big hit to dislodge a caught ball and Marcus Ball had a huge hit to break up another catch.

    In short yardage Darius McClure had a tackle for loss, Myron Rolle broke up a pass, Vince Williams had a sack and Dekoda Watson had two. For the offense Antone Smith, Marcus Sims, Richardson and Ponder all had first down runs. Rod Owens had a leaping catch on the sideline and Reed broke a huge play with some great moves after a short catch.

    In red zone drills Brown had two sacks, Williams had a QB pressure and Jamie Robinson broke up another pass. Ponder connected with Easterling and also hit Reed who had another nice run after the catch. Richardson connected with Owens and then hit Caz Piurowski on a TD. Easterling also had a leaping catch in this drill.
