workout of the spring season today. The Seminoles practiced for 18 periods
in shorts, working on the base offense and defense. They also conducted
agility drills in the Moore Athletic Center prior to practice.
“It was a pretty good practice for the first day,” commented assistant
head coach Chuck Amato. “We worked on putting in the base offense and
defense while concentrating on fundamentals.
The Seminoles are forced to find a replacement at quarterback for ACC
Offensive Player of the Year Thad Busby. Junior Dan Kendra worked with the
No. 1 offense today while sophomores Chris Weinke and Marcus Outzen split

The Seminoles will continue spring practice tomorrow afternoon at the
