There are a number of marquee names on this year’s Florida State defense.

From Derwin James to Josh Sweat to Matthew Thomas, the Seminoles are loaded with exceptional talent that will be playing on Sundays in the near future.

With so many big names, though, it was one of the less prominent defensive backs who came up big for the Seminoles on Saturday.

Sophomore Kyle Meyers finished Saturday’s 26-19 win over Wake Forest with an interception and a forced fumble, FSU’s first two forced turnovers of the 2017 season.

He was thrilled to be able to come through in the clutch when the Seminoles so desperately needed it.

“We needed turnovers, we hadn’t got one all year. We were itching for it, we were fighting for it,” Meyers said in an interview after the game with Seminoles.com. “I’m glad I was able to make plays for this defense and this team.”
