2010 Florida State Football Outlook: Specialists

With the season at hand, here's a segment-by-segment look at the Seminoles moving forward:


Sophomore kicker Dustin Hopkins emerged as a significant contributor both offensively and defensively for the Seminoles.  Hopkins became the top-scoring freshman kicker in school history with 97 points and set an FSU bowl record with four field goals against West Virginia.  His 24 touchbacks on kickoffs ranked fourth nationally.

Junior punter Shawn Powell's first full season as the starter included an impressive 41.6-yard average. He also pinned opponents inside the 20-yard line 13 times on 43 punts and contributed significantly to a unit that allowed just 136 punt return yards.  Powell also handled al placement holds for the second consecutive season.

Greg Reid earned multiple honors for his prowess as a return specialist.  He led the nation in punt returns with an 18.4 average and proved to be a game-changer in late-season wins over Wake Forest and Maryland. Reid was also fourth in the ACC in kickoff returns (25.5 avg).

Redshirt freshman Chris Revell enters in the fall as the leader to take over the long-snapping duties with competition coming from classmate Philip Doumar.
