Updates and interviews from today’s practice

“[We’re] continuing to work on the mindset when things necessarily don’t go your way. Your attitude, your approach, obviously make sure you stay true to the fundamentals and continue to give all you can on a rep.”

Florida State Seminoles head coach Mike Norvell has started off spring challenging his team — both during practice and in his comments so far through media availability. While he’s shown optimism at the progress and overall energy and effort at practice, it’s clear Norvell and his staff have identified problem areas that still need correcting heading into year two.

Spring is the time to fix those mistakes, and as far as self-generated growth, Norvell says that each graduate transfer has so far lived up to the billing that they expected, lauding the effort of defensive end Jermaine Johnson as well as continuing to be impressed by the work of quarterback McKenzie Milton.

“When it comes to timing rhythm and the things we ask them to do in the passing game as well, I’m excited about what I’ve seen — He’s been able to extend plays, he’s moving around in the pocket, out of the pocket. [I’m] excited about the flashes I’ve seen, extremely accurate with the ball when things do break down.”

We’re set to hear from Norvell, staff, and selected players today at 6:15 p.m. We’ll bring you updates in the comments section and on our Twitter.
