TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
The Florida State football team practiced 12 periods in shells on the FSU practice fields this afternoon in its final preparation for Saturday’s annual Garnet and Gold game in Doak Campbell Stadium. The annual spring game begins Saturday at 2 p.m. Admission is free.
“We had a coaching clinic so really all we did was went out and did some demonstrations for the guys,” said head coach Bobby Bowden. “That about wraps it up for the spring.”
“We are going to see how they do in a game situation tomorrow,” said Bowden. “We want to get it as close to game like as we can. We want to see how they perform in game conditions. That’s what we want out of tomorrow.”
“I think all of our player have made improvement this spring,” Bowden continued. “Usually your leaders come from your upperclassmen. Leaders usually come from your seniors, but the quarterback has got to lead.”
Gates C, D, G, X will open at 1 p.m., but festivities begin at Noon at the Seminole Village Interactive area on Langford Green. At halftime of the game, one lucky fan will have the chance to win up to $1,000 worth of groceries from Winn Dixie in the field goal kicking contest. Fans can sign up for the contest at the Seminole Village prior to the game.
