FSU receiver doing the dirty work and not shying away from double teams

“That double team doesn’t mean anything to me.”

Courteney Korosec

Redshirt freshman receiver Tamorrion Terry has the groundwork set to have a breakout year for the ‘Noles. A bright spot in a sloppy game against Samford, Terry hauled in two touchdown catches and is earning praise from his offense coordinator for his blocking ability and work ethic.

At 6’4” with surprising speed, Terry can be a matchup nightmare for opposing secondaries, often drawing double teams. It doesn’t bother the Georgia native, in fact, he says bring it on.

“When they double team me, I like that because it opens up my teammates,” Terry said. “But that double team really doesn’t mean anything to me.”

Terry isn’t letting the two touchdown performance, which included a highlight reel grab, get to his head.

“I felt good about that,” Terry said. “But I really can’t say too much about those touchdowns because i look forward to making a lot more.”

Echoing his coaches, Terry stressed the importance of wide receivers blocking and practicing physically so that it translates to the field on game day.

“Once you play hard at practice, you carry that on to the game,” Terry said. “You block at practice, and it carries on to game. Everything will just come natural for you.”
