Usually, when a guy hauls in a long scoring grab, he’s asked almost exclusively about that catch. That was not the case with ’Nole receiver Tamorrion Terry following FSU’s win over Louisville on Saturday. And for good reason.
Despite Terry’s three receptions, 71 yards, and a touchdown, his most memorable play from Saturday’s Seminole victory was a critical downfield block, the one that assured Nyqwan Murray of scoring on the game’s winning drive. That type of contribution may not sound like a lot, but it really goes a lot further than a single play, or even a lone result, however important that final may have proven for the garnet and gold.
Receiver blocking has been an issue for FSU all season, so to see it executed to perfection in a clutch situation was beyond encouraging for a ’Nole squad still figuring out just what it is— and what it can be. Terry’s description of the play is included in his interview below.
