The big man had to lock it up— and did.

Derrick Nnadi could admit it afterward: his Senior Day ceremony got to him a little bit. That’s what he divulged to members of the media after Florida State’s 77-6 drubbing of Delaware State on Saturday.

But Nnadi wasn’t just thinking about himself. Also honored was Ryan Green, a long-time friend of Nnadi. Green rushed for a game-high 96 yards on just seven carries, while scoring a pair of touchdowns, and Nnadi couldn’t wait to greet him on the sideline.

But while Senior Day is about recognizing those who are departing, it’s also about passing the torch to those on the rise. And for FSU on Saturday, that was all about Joshua Kaindoh. A true freshman, Kaindoh had four sacks, just one away from the Florida State single-game record. Nandi was quite blunt in discussing his impression of Kaindoh: “awesome.”

You can check out Nnadi’s full interview below, which concludes with a look ahead to the rivalry game against Florida next weekend.
