That’s A Wrap. FSU Conducts The Final Practice In Tallahassee For 2008
The next time the Seminole football team meets for practice will be in Orlando.

The Seminole football team opened practices for the 2008 season inside the FSU Basketball Training Facility on August 7. Almost five months later the team participated in its final practice in Tallahassee for the season. The team spent 18 periods continuing to prepare for the Wisconsin Badgers before breaking for the weekend. The next time the team sees each other it will be in Orlando for a Monday afternoon practice.


  • Florida State practiced for 18 periods in uppers and spent a majority of the practice versus Wisconsin scout teams.
  • The last six periods took place inside the stadium.
  • In 1-on-1 Christian Ponder completed two passes to Greg Carr, Corey Surrency and Jarmon Fortson. He completed a pass to Richard Goodman, Rod Owens, Bert Reed and Cameron Wade as well. Drew Weatherford hit Fortson, Louis Givens, Carr, Goodman and Wade. Ochuko Jenije had two pass break-ups and A.J. Alexander broke up a pass as well.
  • In pass rush Andrew Datko and Rodney Hudson won multiple rounds. David Spurlock, Joe Tonga, Rhonne Sanderson, Ryan McMahon and Zebrie Sanders had wins as well. Everette Brown, Paul Griffin and Moses McCray got two sacks a piece. Everett Dawkins, Benjamin Lampkin and Kevin McNeil also got sacks.
  • In 7-on-7 Christian Ponder and Bert Reed once again were in sync as the two hooked up for a couple completions. Ponder also found Carr three times. Weatherford had single completions to Wade, Owens, Avis Commack and Goodman. D’Vontrey Richardson completed a pass to Jarmon Fortson. Michael Ray Garvin had two break-ups.
  • In 11-on-11 the ends were a nightmare for the Seminole offense. Brown recorded two sacks and Markus White had a pressure. Justin Mincey also had a QB pressure working from the inside. Ponder and Reed connected for a couple completions and Weatherford hit Jermaine Thomas twice.
  • The defense, especially the ends, had another great drill in 1:00. Brown had two pressures as did White. Kevin McNeil had a sack and Kendrick Stewart’s pressure led to a Toddrick Verdell interception but the play was wiped out due to a penalty. Verdell also had a QB pressure. Ponder had a nice completion to Commack and also hit Carr.
