As the Florida State Seminoles prepare to practice and travel together on Thanksgiving, one thing coach Jimbo Fisher is thankful for is the team’s health.

“[It’s] very good – especially for this time of year. Very happy with our health. Very lucky,” said Fisher. “That’s one of the reasons you have success. I tell people that all the time. Injuries are a key part of how your season goes sometimes, and we’ve been very blessed.”

FSU will practice at 1 p.m. Thursday, eat together as a team and then depart for Gainesville. The Seminoles and Gators play at noon on Saturday.

Pruitt Honored

Florida State defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt was named a finalist for the Broyles Award, given annually to the nation’s top assistant coach.

Pruitt — who spent the last few years on the Alabama coaching staff — replaced Mark Stoops this past offseason. The Seminoles defense is currently ranked fifth overall, second in scoring and leads the nation in interceptions with 23.
