TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Seminoles.com) – Florida State University will open for classes next week, but one of its most prominent aspects also gets underway soon. Sun Sports and FS Florida will team up as Bill’s Bookstore and Tobacco Free Florida present the 2009 Seminoles Football Preview, hosted by Paul Kennedy. The Seminoles Football Preview premieres on Sun Sports on Monday, August 24 at 8 p.m.
Last season, the Seminoles finished with a strong 9-4 showing and a 42-13 victory over Wisconsin in the Champs Sports Bowl, and this fall, expectations are even higher. The Seminoles are starting the 2009 season ranked in the pre-season top 20 and look to make a climb in the national rankings and contend for an Atlantic Coast Conference Championship.
Viewers will hear comments from Seminoles’ running back Shawn Powell about the high hopes for the football season, the renewed focus on returning FSU football to national prominence and the excitement brewing in Tallahassee over the season-opening match-up against the rival Miami Hurricanes at Doak Campbell Stadium.
Sun Sports sideline reporter Tom Block catches up with Seminoles’ quarterback Christian Ponder and talks with him about his goals in his second year under center for the Seminoles and his expectations for the team going into the 2009 season. To get insight from some of the men leading this young team, Sun Sports FSU football analyst Keith Jones goes one-on-one with Seminoles’ offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher. Jones also sits down with legendary Florida State head coach Bobby Bowden, who answers some tough questions about the upcoming football season and also takes the time to answer a few fan inquiries as well.
Fans will also get to see a special feature on Lawrence Dawsey, Odell Haggins, Dexter Carter and Terrell Buckley – four FSU greats who have returned to their alma mater to coach and help rebuild the Florida State football program.
The 2009 Seminoles Football Preview will replay multiple times on both Sun Sports and FS Florida. The complete schedule is listed below.
