As part of yesterday’s media availability, we spoke with head coach Mike Norvell, along with defensive end Josh Griffis, tight end Wyatt Rector and running back Deonte Sheffield, the final two having been awarded full scholarships by Norvell on Monday. Griffis spoke on adjusting to college (and getting his mullet), while Sheffield and Rector both spoke on the experience of achieving a dream that they’ve been working towards for years.
Norvell also broke the news that defensive back Isaiah Bolden is switching over to receiver (“That’s something that I’m really excited about. Had a really big play today. I think he has a chance to help impact this team”)— while also confirming that receiver DJ Matthews has yet to return to practice.

Didn't come against a great slate of tackles, but Brian Burns was impressive early last season before the wrist injury slowed him down. Top-10 pass-rushing grade at edge through the first 3 weeks.— Ben Linsey (@PFF_Linsey) August 26, 2020
Looking forward to watching him play some more without a cast this season. pic.twitter.com/P6GNNLkY0X
The 1-2 punch for the Squeeze was outstanding this summer, and @brycehubbart is a big reason why. Through 15 innings, the @FSUBaseball LHP produced a 0.60 ERA, striking out 31 and holding batters to a .122 BAA. His 18.6 K/9 was the best in the league for all qualified pitchers. pic.twitter.com/zZ3QSvai7d— Florida League (@floridaleague) August 25, 2020
