Florida State football kicks off on Labor day at Pitt. Tomahawk Nation previews the season up until that date by analyzing every player and other key issues facing the 2013 Seminoles.
#70 Josue Matias | Jr. | Left Guard | 6-6 322
2012 Highlights (via Seminoles.com)
- As a true sophomore, he started all 14 games for FSU at left guard.
- Led all Seminoles in knockdown blocks (31).
- Registered 3+ knockdowns in 7 games last year.
- Graded out at 79.1% on the season, but graded out at 82% or better in each of his last regular-season games.
- Season high grade came against Duke (91%). No word on whether Duke will be pressing charges.
Why is this a borderline hold? Because Matias grabs Floyd's shoulders to control Floyd. This is flaggable. However, Matias pulls the jersey shoulders to roughly an inside-the-shoulders position. Basically, you can tackle a guy if your hands are on his jersey numbers. The reward here is a hearty bear breakfast pancake.
