Entering the season Keith Gavin, despite having a good camp and good spring, had not made much of an impact for this year but that all changed today in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Keith Gavin had his best game as a Seminole, boosting an offense that was largely sputtering vs. Wake Forest’s small yet technically sound defense with a huge 81 yard kick return to set up FSU’s first touchdown after Wake Forest had taken a 12-3 lead.

It wouldn’t be the last clutch play he’d make in the game as FSU was down three in the fourth quarter while facing a third and twenty from its their own 37 FSU when Gavin delivered the (at that moment) biggest catch of the game as he broke off his fade route to make a great between two defenders and then race 26 more yards for a Florida State first down. The 43 yard conversion was FSU’s second longest play from scrimmage on the day and the biggest until Auden Tate’s game-winning touchdown.

After the game Keith broke down what those plays meant to him; the incredible catch by Auden Tate, and how this win has affected the team’s morale; check it out here:
