Florida State Seminoles football will take to Bobby Bowden Field at Doak Campbell Stadium today for its annual Spring Showcase, giving FSU fans and the world at large its first glimpse into this year’s iteration of the Seminoles squad.
FSU has logged 13 practices so far, acclimating itself back up to the standard head coach Mike Norvell has looked to establish in the first three years of his tenure before amping up the intensity to further set the tone for 2023.
A top-15 finish last season, the return of 87% of production, and an infusion of talent via the transfer portal have expectations riding high in Tallahassee — and throughout spring camp, that’s been reflected in the mindset of the team. Players and coaches are aware of what’s on the line and what’s possible in 2023, and in turn, there’s been an elevation of intensity and competitiveness as each side tries to bring out the best in themselves and each other.
That elevation will be able to be put on display in the 2023 Garnet and Gold Spring Showcase, which is set to be streaming only on ACC Network Extra.
Tickets for the 2023 Spring Showcase are listed at $10 and are available for purchase online.
Some notes, via FSU:
- Everyone in attendance will be entered to win a practice-worn jersey from this year’s squad at the conclusion of the Spring Showcase. Winners will be notified during the event via email and the jerseys must be picked up by the end of the day in the Seminole Sportshop in the south endzone.
- Fans will be allowed on the field postgame.
