TALLAHASSEE, FLA. – The Florida State football team returned to the practice fields for its second full workout of the spring Wednesday afternoon. The team practiced for 20 periods in shorts with work on fundamentals and team drills. The Seminole receiving corps was the highlight of today’s practice.
“The guys were a little better today in the things we were doing,” said head coach Bobby Bowden. “We caught the ball extremely well today, a lot better than we did a year ago. We’ll practice again on Friday and have a half scrimmage on Saturday.”
Matt Henshaw, who moved to the tight end position from quarterback last year, drew praise from head coach Bobby Bowden as he looked impressive today. Henshaw hauled in a pair of deep passes from redshirt Freshman quarterback Wyatt Sexton, including a touchdown reception of 47 yards. Dominic Robinson and Craphonso Thorpe also highlighted the pass skeleton drills. Robinson caught three balls from Chris Rix totaling 45 yards in 7-on-7 drills, while Thorpe had three receptions from Sexton for 98 yards.
The Seminoles third practice session will be held Friday afternoon. Practices will remain closed to both the media and the public. TV’s and photographers may shoot the first 20 minutes of practice, but must contact the sports information department beforehand.
