    Rolle Finalist For Lott Trophy As Noles Continue Practice For BC

    FSU Sports Information Excerpts:

    As the Noles continued practice for Boston College, it was announced today that safety Myron Rolle was named one of eight semifinalists for the Lott Trophy. Rolle is currently second on the team in tackles with 46 and also is second on the team in pass break-ups with five. He has started 31 straight games since his true freshman year. Named after Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott, The Lott Trophy is awarded to college football’s Defensive IMPACT Player of the Year. Now in its fifth year, The Lott Trophy is the first and only college football award to equally recognize athletic performance and the personal character attributes of the player.

    In practice news, Bobby Bowden knows how the grind of a season can take a toll on any team’s health but heading into the final three regular season games of 2008 his squad is as healthy as it has been all year. That is good news for an FSU team that still has a shot at playing for the league championship for the first time since 2005 and still has games remaining versus Boston College and Maryland.

    Head Coach Bobby Bowden:

    On the battle on the line:

    “That will be a big test this week because we are playing against one of the strongest fronts probably in the country. Really, they manhandled Notre Dame last week. I was amazed. Notre Dame is usually a pretty physical football team up front. This will be a tough, tough battle up front.”

    On Jermaine Thomas’ turf toe:

    “I see no effects of it thank goodness. That can be bad but thank goodness it is not.”
