#FacesofFSUFootball - - - “I actually wanted to go to Miami because my mom went to law school there. I wasn’t thinking about coming here until Coach T offered me preferred walk-on spot at the last minute. One of my biggest fears has always been living up to the standards that people set for me. The standards are set because of my dad and that’s always been in the back of my mind. Every time I do good things, it’s ‘oh, you’re performing just like your dad.’ I love my dad but I’m trying to make a name for myself though. Caleb Ward… not Charlie’s son.” - Caleb Ward, Freshman, WR
