FSU Sports Information Excerpts:
Following five days of practice last week including the first full pad scrimmage, the Seminole football team had Sunday off. Following a day of rest, the squad was back out on the field Monday practicing 22 periods in shells. This week FSU will practice four times with off days coming on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
Head Coach Bobby Bowden
“We previously had planned on going out in full pads today, but our running backs are kind of beat up so we decided to come out in shells.”
On who stood out in the first week and at the scrimmage:
“Some guys that caught our attention last week. Bert Reed has made some real good strides. Shows a lot of potential out there if he will just keep up the work. Avis Commack also, a freshman, is coming along pretty good. Looks like he will be able to help us there. Pat Robison is playing big league at corner. He is playing big league cornerback for us. (Ochuko) Jenije has made a lot of improvement as well. Marcus Sims…I told Marcus a while ago he ran as good Saturday as any back I have seen out here in a long time. He must had more broken tackles than…I know he had more broken tackles than anyone on Saturday but that was some really great running by him. Ty Jones ran well. Kendrick Stewart has played well inside. Everett Dawkins looked better rushing the passer. Now if he can get his play against the run better that will really help him but his pass rushing was pretty good. (Kendall) Smith to me kinda stands out among all the linebackers. Playing pretty good.
On the scrimmage:
“It was a pretty good scrimmage. We are not going backwards. We are going forwards and again it is just a matter of how quick they can learn everything and just coordinate.
