TALLAHASSEE — An exciting weekend in Florida State athletics — a pair of softball wins over FIU, baseball secures a series win vs. the Duke Blue Devils, a 2024 Savannah, GA quarterback commits, and the first football scrimmage of spring draws praise and more expectations from the coaching staff.
The first scrimmage following a series of practices concluded on Saturday and cleats in the turf seemed to have done the team well inside of Doak Campbell Stadium.
Former players are preparing for Pro Day on Tuesday while the next open practice for the football squad will follow at 4 p.m.
Spirits are high for Winston Wright Jr. after a devastating car crash that will likely see him miss the spring. Head coach Mike Norvell addressed the issue last Tuesday saying he expects Wright to miss an “extended period” of time.
