TALLAHASSEE -- Upbeat practice
A few days after being upset by N.C. State, Florida State turned in one of its best practices of the season, according to coaches and players. “The energy level was really good, the enthusiasm was really good, their spirits were really good,” coach Jimbo Fisher said.
“We’re still tight, we still believe in each other, and we still think the world of this season,” junior safety Lamarcus Joyner said. “We think we’ve got a lot still going for ourselves.”
Kicker Dustin Hopkins was nominated by the Groza Award committee as a star of the week after kicking three field goals against N.C. State. Hopkins is seven points from becoming the all-time FSU and ACC leader in points. Hopkins (387 point) could break the mark Saturday against Boston College. FSU’s Derek Schmidt and Maryland’s Nick Novak share the record.
