TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State football team returned to the practice fields on Wednesday afternoon for a 26-period workout. The team worked in full pads for the first time this spring and used the final half of practice for a mini-scrimmage. The Seminoles are in their second week of four weeks of practice that will conclude with the annual Garnet & Gold game on April 3rd.
“We had a little scrimmage today,” said head coach Bobby Bowden. “There were some good things and some bad things on both offense and defense. (Lorenzo) Booker had some good runs out there today and I felt like we threw and caught the ball well too.”
The team spent most of the afternoon working on position drills during the first 12 periods before scrimmaging in the final half of practice. The defense dominated the majority of the scrimmage, while Lorenzo Booker had a strong showing during the scrimmage.
Defensively, Willie Jones had two sacks while Broderick Bunkley, Marcello Church and Eric Moore each had a sack a piece. Bryant McFadden had the lone interception of the day as well as a pass break up. Linebackers A.J. Nicholson and Buster Davis both recorded tackles for loss.
Chris Rix was 2-for-7 for 32 yards and an interception while Sexton was 3-for-7 for 56 yards and a touchdown to Stovall.
The Seminoles return to practice Friday at 3:15 p.m. before holding a scrimmage on Saturday.
