Florida State football held their second practice of Clemson game week this morning. The Seminoles will head to Death Valley on Saturday for a 3:30 PM kickoff against the Tigers. The ‘Noles will be riding a three-game win-streak into the rivalry game. After practice today, defensive linemen Keir Thomas and Jermaine Johnson each met with the media. Here’s some of what they had to say:

Jermaine Johnson

“I’ve always had self confidence. Really the main goal was to be the best teammate I can and give the program what they were looking for.”

“Practice is intense. We understand what kind of game we’ve got on Saturday. What kind of team we’re going to face. Both of us haven’t had the seasons we wanted, but we definitely both want this win. Just getting ready for a dog fight.”

“I love it. I love going to someone else’s house and getting a win. That’s what we’re looking to do.”

“They run the quarterback a lot. We know we’re going to see that. Just getting ready for a physical game up front.”

“I think we’re getting close to eliminating all the mistakes that put us in that position. I’m excited about where we’re at as a team. And we’re just getting better every week... We understand the standard and we’re making each other live up to it.”

“I’m excited. Another opportunity to try to knock them off. Very excited about the opportunity with the guys I’m going to war with.”

“That’s definitely one of the craziest places to play in. It’s a pretty cool experience. I like playing in big crowds.”

“Winning always feels good, winning building confidence. Defense, I know for a fact we feel confident going into this game and we just trying to keep it rolling.”
