Following a practice that was closed to the media on Tuesday, Florida State football head coach Jimbo Fisher, defensive end DeMarcus Walker, wide receiver Travis Rudolph, running back Dalvin cook and defensive back Derwin James all gave interviews.

Head coach Jimbo Fisher gave a health update on redshirt sophomore offensive lineman Alec Eberle, who had been having problems related to migraines, not concussions like the team had originally thought. Fisher was also very pleased with the work freshman offensive lineman Andrew Boselli has done in the recent practices.

Wide Receiver Travis Rudolph visited a school with a few of his teammates on Tuesday. The junior then saw a kid sitting alone, and proceeded to join him for lunch. The rest is history. You can read more about the heartwarming story here.

Defensive back Derwin James talked about Ole Miss being the biggest game of his life. The sophomore went on to break down Ole Miss and talk about what aspects make a great football player.

Defensive end DeMarcus Walker briefly talked about what he tries to teach his teammates and the 2014 Florida State season compared to this year’s squad.

Florida State running back Dalvin Cook compared current freshman back Amir Rasul to former ‘Nole Devonta Freeman and about his former days in high school, playing at the Citrus Bowl, where the ‘Noles will open up 2016.
