Florida State quarterback McKenzie Milton spoke Wednesday after practice to preview the upcoming match-up against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. He also discussed the response of the team after the loss to FCS foe Jacksonville State, younger players stepping up, and moving forward as the Seminoles step into ACC play this weekend at 3:30pm on ESPN.
“Obviously that first day, the first couple days you kinda just try to dig yourself out of that hole and just pick back up and get ready for next week. I feel like our approach to work on Tuesday and Wednesday today has been good we’ve been locked in. But you know we’re playing a perfect opponent. In terms of what we’ve been struggling with in terms of execution and discipline, that's what Wake is all about so we gotta go out there and execute.”
- Redshirt freshman Darion Williamson has seen an increased role in-game and in practice and has a season average of 11 yards per catch through the first two matchups.
“Man he’s special with the ball in his hand, he gets open. We’re gonna keep finding ways to get him the ball if he’s gonna keep making plays. He’s special he’s a great player and a great kid.”
- Milton, a former Heisman canidate was 26-6 at the University of Central Florida. Florida State is 0-2 on the season and that is something he is not used to starting out at any point in his life.
“I don't think I’ve been 0 and 2 in my life but there's a first time for everything. But we’re here where we are at you know and we are trying to be 1-0 [in conference play] this week.
