FLORIDA STATE — The Florida State Seminoles football team has put week one of fall camp in the books and topped it off with a few commitments. A major recruiting weekend is over and two new commitments came to fruition. The MLB draft picked up a ‘Nole and Soccer got new uniforms.
Let's dive in:
Now with the first four days of fall camp in the books, the Seminoles are eager as ever to get fully padded and go full force. There have been numerous standouts so far ranging from freshmen across the board and veterans alike. Yesterday, defensive back Azareye’h Thomas shined and had a great practice along with quarterback AJ Duffy opening up his game a bit and started slinging it around.

So far, out of four initial foot races, head coach Mike Norvell has a 3-1 lead over defensive tackle Robert Cooper. The two race every morning to kick off practice and Big Coop usually gets some help from his teammates but either way its magical.

FSU pitcher Parker Messick went in the second round of the MLB draft to the Cleveland Guardians inking a deal valued at 1.3 million.
Well-deserved money. Parker is truly one of a kind. The ultimate competitor, teammate, and person. Not going to find many people that care more for the people around them. Was a true joy to cover and interact with. https://t.co/YdI4XTAN9H— Brett Nevitt (@brettpn) July 30, 2022
