TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Defending national champion Florida State
continued spring football practice with a 15-period workout in shells on
Monday afternoon at the Seminole practice complex. FSU corrected mistakes
from last Saturday’s scrimmage, continued work on fundamentals and closed
practice with a five-minute 11-on-11 scrimmage.
“We got some good work in,” said Florida State head coach Bobby
Bowden. “We don’t have much more time left in the spring but I like our
progress to this point.”
Highlights of the practice included long touchdown catches by tight
end Carver Donaldson and wide receiver Anquan Boldin in seven-on-seven
passing drills. Donaldson caught a Marcus Outzen pass while Boldin’s score
came from Chris Weinke. The Seminole defense dominated most of the closing
11-on-11 drills, recording two sacks by Bradley Jennings and Alonzo Jackson.
“We plan to divide up the teams for Saturday’s game a little
differently,” Bowden said. “We will take the best offensive guard and put
him on one team and the other No. 1 guard on the other team. We will go
down each position like that until the teams fill out. It might make the
game a little more competitive.”
FSU will hold its final practice in full pads of the spring on
Tuesday, take Wednesday and Thursday off and workout Friday in shells.
Saturday’s Garnet and Gold Game starts at 2:00 p.m. in Doak Campbell
