TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – First-year Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher has energized the program and at tonight’s Seminole Get Down, he’ll bring that enthusiasm to the fan base. Fisher will make an appearance on the main stage between 6:15-7 p.m. as the weekend’s Spring Game festivities kick into gear.
Fisher won’t be the only familiar face on stage for the first-time spring game event, sponsored by the Florida State athletics department. Current Seminoles Christian Ponder and Ochuko Jenije – members of the Gold team for Saturday’s 5 p.m. game – will be joined by Garnet squad standouts Bert Reed and Lonnie Pryor between 6-7 p.m. on stage.
There will be plenty to do as Seminole fans gather in the cordoned off area between Adams St. and College Ave. in the heart of downtown Tallahassee. Live music, food and beverages, plus appearances by the Marching Chiefs and the Florida State cheerleaders are scheduled. Some former Seminole football stars of old, many of whom will be participating in Saturday’s halftime flag football game, will also be in attendance.
“It’s 100 percent put on by Florida State athletics and every aspect of Get Down has a Florida State flair to it,” said Jason Dennard, director of marketing for Seminole/ISP Sports.
Whether you’re looking for an early evening event with the family, or a late-night gathering with fellow fans, the Seminole Get Down is the place to start an FSU-filled weekend of activities. Best of all, there’s no charge for admission.
