    Spring Practice Report: Day 2

    FSU Sports Information Excerpts:

    Thursday was supposed to be an off day for the Seminole football team but after weather shut down Wednesday's session before it got started, the team was back out on the field this afternoon. The squad went through another 26-period practice in shorts. It was the second-to-last practice in shorts as the Seminoles will come out in shells on Friday and in full pads on Saturday.


    Most of the start of practice was spent working in position groups.

    The receivers and defensive backs broke off to work on 1-on-1 drills inside the red zone. Drew Weatherford connected with Taiwan Easterling while Ponder found Greg Carr, Richard Goodman, Rod Owens and Chase Walker. Ochuko Jenije and Terrance Parks both broke up passes.

    While half the squad worked on inside drills, the DB's and wideouts went back to work versus each other. D'Vontrey Richardson had a couple completions to Carr while Weatherford hit Owens, Walker and Goodman. Ponder hit Preston Parker twice, one of which was on a deep ball. For the defense, Patrick Robinson, Tony Carter and Dionte Allen all broke up passes.

    In ½ skel Weatherford had multiple connections with Carr, Bert Reed and Rod Owens. He completed deep passes to Owens and Parker. Ponder and Reed hooked up twice and both were one-handed grabs by the redshirt freshman. One was up against the fence and drew a reaction from Corey Fuller watching from the sidelines. Ponder also had completions to Seddrick Holloway, Owens and Brandon Paul. Richardson completed passes Carr, Owens, Goodman and Easterling. For the defense Carter, Darius McClure, Korey Mangum, Jamie Robinson and Patrick Robinson all broke up passes. Patrick Robinson also picked off a pass that came off the hands of one of the receivers.

    In pass rush Brandon Davis, Antwane Greenlee, Rodney Hudson and Evan Bellamy all had wins for the offense. Jamar Jackson, Dumaka Atkins, Paul Griffin and Everette Brown all got to the QB.

    After the offense and defense split up, the team came back together for 11-on-11. The main highlight for the offense was a Weatherford to Carr hook-up and two big runs by Antone Smith. The defense had a sack from Dekoda Watson, a near pick by Derek Nicholson, a tackle for loss from Roosevelt Lawson and a QB pressure from Budd Thacker. Atkins batted a ball down at the line for the second consecutive practice.
