Florida State Seminoles take first scrimmage indoors


Miami Herald Writer

Florida State held its first scrimmage of the season on Wednesday, complete with live hitting and coaches putting on the headsets to simulate gameday conditions. After warming up inside Doak Campbell Stadium, thunderstorms quickly pushed the Seminoles indoors under the cover of their new indoor practice facility.

“I might just scrimmage in here all the time,” coach Jimbo Fisher joked afterward. “I liked the effort, a lot of young guys jumped out at me on both sides of the ball. Just the athleticism — they made some mistakes too — but just the ability for some young guys who can help us in the mix.”

“In practice we’re just thudding most of the time,” said linebacker Christian Jones, when asked about the live tackling on Wednesday afternoon. “So it’s always good to get back out there and get a few hits in.”

Haggins out

Senior wide receiver Jarred Haggins will be sidelined for a while with a patella fracture. The 6-0, 193-pound Haggins has battled injuries throughout his career. Haggins does have the option to redshirt this season should him and the Seminoles decide to.
