FSU Football Spring Top 20 Performance Results Released

July 26, 2001

Jon Jost, FSU’s Director of Strength and Conditioning, released the results of the stength and conditioning index implemented upon his arrival this spring. Jost released the Top 20 overall athletes among FSU’s 2001 football team and only the Top 10 scorers in each of the individual categories.

Sophomore linebacker Michael Boulware scored the highest among all Seminoles tested with a 1460. Senior running back Davy Ford was second on the team with 1449 and offensive tackle Todd Williams finished third at 1375. Walk-on running back Ryan Reynolds, and defensive end Alonzo Jackson round out the Top Five. Returning quarterbacks Anquan Boldin and Chris Rix both finished among the teams top Top 15 athletes. Some members of the team were not tested or had an incomplete test because of injury.

“The method of testing we have implemented is very different than the ones FSU has used in the past so the numbers are not comparable at all,” said Jost who joined the FSU staff in April. “That is not to say that there was anything wrong or inaccurate about the previous testing, but this is a completely different system. I’ve been very pleased with the attitude and effort that the players have already put into the program and the results show that we have some very exceptional athletes.”

The Seminoles were tested in the hang clean, squat and bench press as part of the strength component in the testing. The performance portion was made up of the vertical jump, and 10-yard dash (future tests will also include the pro agility run and 40-yard dash). Scoring ranges from 0 to 1,000 points, with 1,000 points being equal to a predicted world record performance in the event. The Index takes into account the result of each test as well as the athlete’s body weight, which enables every athlete’s abilities to be evaluated equally. The index was developed at the University of Nebraska and evaluated over a ten year period by a team of statistics professors to develop the scoring equation.

Over 90 percent of the 2001 FSU team is in Tallahassee over the second summer school semester including 14 members of the incoming recruiting class.
