FSU Practices For 21 Periods In Shoulder Pads As BC Prep Continues

Seminole’s as healthy as they have been all season for Homecoming game.

Head coach Bobby Bowden knows how the grind of a season can take a toll on any team’s health but heading into the final three regular season games of 2008 his squad is as healthy as it has been all year. That is good news for an FSU team that still has a shot at playing for the league championship for the first time since 2005 and still has games remaining versus Boston College and Maryland.

PRACTICE HIGHLIGHTS

  • FSU spent 21 periods practicing in shorts and shoulder pads. It is the second straight day the team has been in shorts.
  • Most of practice was spent with both the offense and defense working versus scout teams.
  • In skeleton, Christian Ponder spread the ball around finding Jermaine Thomas, Greg Carr and Taiwan Easterling. Drew Weatherford connected on passes to Jarmon Fortson and Thomas.
  • Inside the 20 during skeleton Weatherford found Reed twice and Ponder hooked-up with Marcus Sims and Carr.
  • The defense had another nice drill in 11-on-11. Kendall Smith had a QB pressure as did Kevin McNeil. Michael Ray Garvin stripped the ball away from a receiver causing a fumble.
  • In the 1:00 drill the offense was unable to score despite a deep pass to Carr and Ponder connecting with Thomas, Corey Surrency and Preston Parker. Tony Carter broke up a pass, Kendrick Stewart got a sack and Patrick Robinson got a pass break-up as well.

The Seminole football players had the day off from school due to Veteran’s Day but that mini-vacation did not extend to the practice fields.

  • When 1-on-1 moved inside the 20 Garvin and Dionte Allen broke up potential TD passes. Drew Weatherford found Reed, Jarmon Fortson, Corey Surrency and Louis Givens. The biggest play of the drill was turned in by Parker who pulled in a one-handed grab from Manuel in the back corner of the endzone where he managed to get one foot in bounds.
  • In pass rush Moses McCray was the big winner with four sacks. Everette Brown, Markus White, Kendrick Stewart and Neefy Moffett got to the QB twice and Justin Mincey got into the backfield as well. Rodney Hudson and Ryan McMahon were the only multiple winners for the offense. Antwane Greenlee, Joe Tonga, A.J. Ganguzza and Brandon Davis also had wins.
  • In skeleton, Christian Ponder found Surrency once and then had two completions to Greg Carr, Easterling and Parker. One of the completions to Parker was on a deep ball. Weatherford hit Surrency, Ja’Baris Little, Wade and Givens once each. He also hit Rod Owens twice and one completion featured a great run after the catch. Tony Carter and Patrick Robinson broke up passes.
  • Pass break-ups were the bi story in 11-on-11. Patrick Robinson had two, Jamie Robinson and Korey Mangum each had one as well. Neefy Moffett had a sack and a QB pressure. There were only two highlights for the offense and one was a completion from Ponder to Surrency and the other was Weatherford going to Owens.
