TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – First-year Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher will be featured in Raycom Sports’ Emmy Award-winning summer television series, “Havoline Football Saturdays in the South” which makes its season debut this weekend.

Saturday marks the start of the program’s seventh season as Tim Brando hosts the first of six one-hour episodes, which will be syndicated in 65 markets throughout the southeast and the Atlantic Coast Conference footprint.

Raycom Sports provides viewers and inside look at FSU’s first new head coach since 1976, when Bobby Bowden roamed the sidelines in the first of his 34 season at the helm of the Seminoles. Fisher, one of the bright young minds in the game, talks about how it feels to follow a legend and what kind of changes FSU fans can expect this season.

The season-opening episode will also feature the inspirational journey of Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich, who is preparing to return to the football field after missing the 2009 season as he battled Ewing Sarcoma cancer. It will also take viewers behind the scenes with a fun-filled road trip to Clemson.

Fisher won’t be the only Seminole featured throughout the series this summer. Earlier this summer the series hit the road for Colleyville, Texas for an in-home visit with FSU quarterback Christian Ponder and his family. That feature will air in the sixth and final episode in late August.
