UPDATE: La’Damian Webb opts out of 2020 season, plans to return for 2021

Seminoles lose sophomore running back for the year

UPDATED 12/02/2020 10:47 AM

FSU Head Coach announced La’Damian Webb plans to return for the 2021 season:

On Tuesday morning, Florida State sophomore running back La’Damian Webb opted out of for remainder of the 2020 season. It is currently unknown whether he intends to transfer from FSU.

A feature back in the Noles’ 2020 rotation, Webb rushed for 369 yards and 3 touchdowns this season, appearing in 7 games. He averaged 5.3 yards-per-carry on 54 attempts, while also catching 9 passes for 68 yards.

In the Seminoles’ upset win over North Carolina in October, Webb racked up the first 100-yard game of his FSU career, rushing for 109 yards on just 12 carries.

Two weeks earlier against Jacksonville State, Webb helped lead a comeback win with 2 touchdowns, including a highlight-reel 15-yard run to tie the game early in the third quarter.

“I did not take this decision lightly,” Webb said. “I made it based on what is best for me and my family.”

A JUCO transfer from Jones College in Mississippi, Webb signed with the Noles in head coach Mike Norvell’s first recruiting class last spring.
