FSU Football Completes First Spring Scrimmage
Sights & Sounds: FSU Spring Scrimmage, April 1
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State’s first scrimmage of spring came at the right time, just in time for the Seminoles to spend their final two weeks continuing to work on execution on both sides of the ball. The Seminoles ran through a 130 plus play situational scrimmage Monday afternoon inside Doak Campbell Stadium.
“There were some good and bad signs for both sides (of the ball),” FSU head football coach Jimbo Fisher said. “I think plays were made on each side because the other side didn’t execute. That’s kind of typical for this time in the spring. We did some good things. All of the quarterbacks rotated in evenly. Each had their chances with the 1’s and 2’s in different situations. Guys did some nice things, but we have a long way to go.”
FSU rotated its first, second and third team offenses and defenses for the first half of the scrimmage, before spending the second half working on third down, redzone, goal line, two-minute and other situations. No statistics are scheduled to be released.
FSU returns to the practice field Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday for three more practices. The next closed scrimmage is slated for next Monday. All practices are closed to the public. Fans are just now 12 days away from the spring football weekend which will be capped off with the annual Garnet and Gold Spring football game at 2 p.m. at Doak Campbell Stadium on Apr. 13. The game will be carried on ESPN3 and replayed on ESPNU.
