Football Works on Fundamentals

March 30, 1999

TALLAHASSEE, Fla – The Florida State football team practiced for five
periods (1 hr. and 15 min.) this afternoon in shorts, shoulder pads and
helmets. The team watched film before hitting the practice fields, where
they worked on fundamentals and some basic offensive and defensive

“I felt like we got some things done today,” said head coach Bobby
Bowden. “We worked on some little things because the only way to get
better is to do the little things. Jared Jones threw the ball well. I
thought he threw the best today among the quarterbacks. Outzen was a
little too inconsistent. The kids caught the ball pretty good today,
better than last week.”

Tomorrow afternoon, the Seminoles will practice in full pads and
hold a half scrimmage. They will have Thursday off and have their second
full scrimmage of the spring on Friday.

“We have to stay healthy now so they can keep practicing,” said
Bowden. “There are only six days left after today for some of these guys
to prove themselves. We have a lot of battles going on, good competition
at every position especially offensive line. We are also looking for some
defensive tackles to back-up Corey (Simon) and Jerry (Johnson). We have
always played four or five guys there.”

No new injuries were reported after today’s workout.
