Florida State Seminoles football got back at it today, taking the practice field in pads for the first time this spring.

Head coach Mike Norvell had a lot to say about the first day in pads and echoed that in his post-practice interview:

“ We want to play with pace, we want to be able to move quickly; we try to create as much of that during Tour of Duty and think we do a pretty good job at it. But, when you get physicality there’s a different sense of emotion that arises and I’ll tell you I absolutely love the way our guys were responding. For 23 newcomers, even in the moments of their reception of coaching and the way that they’re trying to apply it, I really believe it’s because of our team.”

Here are some views, sights, and sounds from today’s practice:

The next practice will be on Friday, March 11th at 4:00 p.m.
