  05/15/22 - Jordan TravisrJr/2024, Florida State, 6-1, 201 (DS#35 QB) + More +

  When Florida State coach Mike Norvell began retooling the Seminoles' roster over the past few seasons, he was looking to add necessary experience and leadership to an otherwise young and raw group of players. Norvell achieved that by adding more than two dozen players through the transfer market. Their presence gave the team a lift, specifically through the performances of players such as Jermaine Johnson II, Keir Thomas, Jashaun Corbin and Devontay Love-Taylor. As the play improved, so did the team's confidence - a noticeable improvement coming out of FSU's spring camp last month.

"You saw confidence because guys understood the expectation," said Norvell. "We were able to push harder, and it wasn't all new for them." The quarterback group showed the most significant growth, with redshirt junior Jordan Travis returning as FSU's starter. After on-again, off-again seasons, Travis also assumes a more prominent leadership role for the Seminoles. "It's probably one of the biggest differences within our program," said Norvell. "Jordan is an incredible young man, but we had yet to see that confidence because there had not been that consistency of him being the guy, being able to go out there and consistently showcase what he could do. We got a glimpse of that last year and you watch how he responded in challenging situations." - Orlando Sentinel

  Florida State running back Jashaun Corbin is ending his time with the Seminoles and declaring for the 2022 NFL Draft. Corbin shared his decision in a statement on social media Monday. "Thank you God and to everyone who has helped me get to this point. I'm truly grateful #HeroZero," the redshirt sophomore posted on Twitter. Corbin started 20 games in his two seasons with FSU after arriving as a transfer from Texas A&M, where he appeared in 14 games for the Aggies. He led the Seminoles in rushing with 887 yards, including two of the longest runs in the ACC: an 89-yard touchdown against Notre Dame and a 75-yard touchdown against Louisville. He joined Dalvin Cook (2015), Chris Thompson (2010) and Sammie Smith (1987) as the only players in school history with multiple scoring runs of 75 yards or longer in a season. Corbin also was one of the Seminoles top receiving threats, leading the team in catches (25) while totaling 144 yards and 1 touchdown. - Orlando Sentinel

  Florida State defensive end Jermaine Johnson II penned a farewell letter to Seminoles fans Thursday as the redshirt senior transitions into preparations for the upcoming NFL draft. "I know this message can't explain all my feelings of gratitude for this university, but I'll give it my best shot … First, I want and need to thank God, my amazing support system, teammates, coaches and staff, and, of course, you amazing fans," Johnson said in a statement posted to Twitter. "The incredible opportunity to represent this university and everyone associated with it has been nothing short of a blessing, and I cannot thank God enough for it." After spending two seasons at Georgia, Johnson was among 13 transfers to join the Florida State roster in the offseason.

The redshirt senior immediately impacted the Seminoles, providing the defense with an elite edge rusher. He earned ACC Defensive Player of the Year honors earlier this month, capping a season where he led the conference in sacks (12) and tackles for loss (18). Johnson became the eighth Seminole to earn the honor since its inception in 1993, joining DeMarcus Walker (2016), Bjoern Werner (12), Darnell Dockett (03), Andre Wadsworth (97), Peter Boulware (96), Derrick Alexander (94) and Derrick Brooks (93). - Orlando Sentinel

  12/07/21 - McKenzie MiltonrSr/2022, Florida State, 5-11, 194 (DS#29 QB) + More +

  2021 BRIAN PICCOLO AWARD WINNER: Florida State senior quarterback McKenzie Milton and Clemson junior wide receiver Justyn Ross have been named joint recipients of the Atlantic Coast Conference's 2021 Brian Piccolo Award, the league announced on Monday. The Piccolo Award has been given annually since 1970 in memory of the late Brian Piccolo to the "most courageous" football player in the ACC. Milton, who hails from Kapolei, Hawai'i, joined Florida State this season as a graduate transfer from UCF, where he suffered a catastrophic knee injury in the 2018 regular-season finale. A two-time Heisman Trophy candidate, Milton suffered artery and nerve damage to his leg, a dislocated knee and multiple torn ligaments and tendons. He nearly had his right leg amputated after the helmet-to-knee hit caused a lack of blood flow to his leg. Doctors removed a vein from his left leg to help create a new artery for his right leg to restore blood flow and successfully save this leg. The main goal from the surgeons who operated on him was for him to hopefully one day walk without a limp and without pain. After eight surgical procedures, he persevered through more than 1,000 days of rehabilitation, and in December 2020, transferred to Florida State. Milton appeared in six games for the Seminoles this season, completing 81 of 139 passes (58.3%) for 775 yards and three touchdowns. - ACC Football
