The first half of the first week of fall practice is in the books. Read Wednesday’s practice report here.

The mid-week practice was highlighted by former FSU defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews sharing some knowledge with current players. He’s seen below talking to Janarius Robinson.

Andrews’ advice could serve the Seminoles’ defense extremely well when the season starts. FSU’s first opponent this season, Virginia Tech, had one of the worst red-zone touchdown rates in the nation last season.

Warren Thompson and Tamorion Terry also stood out at wide receiver, catching passes and tip-toeing the sideline.

Huge news came Wednesday when Tomahawk Nation confirmed with multiple sources that four-star linebacker Xavier Peters has qualified academically to practice with the Seminoles.

In case you missed it, here’s everything you need to know from the first and second day of fall practice, including the Sunday evening press conference inside Doak Campbell Stadium.

In other news, one of FSU’s biggest rivals — the Miami Hurricanes — are going to be thin and young at tight end this season.

Who remembers when Peter Warrick single-handedly destroyed the Tigers in Death Valley in 1997? The most electrifying of his three touchdowns made it as No. 26 on our countdown of the top-100 plays in Florida State football history.
