TALLAHASSEE -- One thing coach Jimbo Fisher appreciates about his team is its high level of leadership. The Seminoles boast 11 graduated seniors coming into the 2012 season, with a handful more scheduled to earn their degree at the end of the fall semester.
“They’re great examples,” Fisher said. “Those guys are doing great in academics, [and] they sell that to our younger guys.”
Fisher hopes the example provided by the upperclassmen will help the team’s younger players avoid one of the major pitfalls of college academics: procrastination.
“You want to get to where November matters,” Fisher said. “If you go to the end and you’re staying up until 2, 3 in the morning doing a paper. Then you got practice the next day, your sleep, your concentration, there’s only so much you can focus on.
“I think [our seniors] are doing a great job sending that message.”
