It’s easy for fans to root for the backup quarterback. It’s a lot tougher for that QB to actually get onto the field during meaningful time. Which is why FSU’s plan for graduate-transfer Alex Hornibrook proved so prophetic during Saturday’s win over the Louisville Cardinals.
The Seminoles employed Hornibrook every three series during the first half of Saturday’s win over Louisville. It proved a wise move by the FSU coaching staff, as necessity then dictated Hornibrook taking all the snaps thereafter, following an injury to starting QB James Blackman. Hornibrook spoke after the game about assuming that role.
Wisely and graciously, Hornibrook discussed how tough it was to see Blackman go down, as well as paying tribute to Blackman’s leadership on the FSU sideline.
Hornibrook also talked about how knowing he’d play, as part of the game plan, altered his approach to this game, as well as his first pass wearing garnet and gold, which resulted in a touchdown.
The rest— well, y’all can just watch below from the footage we got during his breakout session with the media.
