JUL 2021Look at all these smiling Noles - we're happy to be back together!
Played a little 'Fear the Spear' bingo, Seminole trivia was on the big screens, and lots of food, fun, garnet and gold on a sunny Sunday afternoon...
On 13 November 2010, I was eating a meal at Harry’s Seafood in Tallahassee with my father before the Clemson game when I saw FSU legend Derrick Brooks walk in. Jumping at the opportunity in a respectful way, I approached him and asked for a photograph. He was very gracious and took time to speak with me. I tried not to take up his time as he explained he was picking up food for family in town. I thanked him and wished him the best….hours later, I was surprised to see him walking on the field as his number was retired that night in front of his family…he is a great Florida State Ambassador. - Bo, FSU Class of ‘2000, SCGO member
🏈 The balloons we let go before the games, I know it’s insensitive, but all those garnet and gold balloons were awesome - Linda, SCGO member

Florida State fielded the nation's youngest football team in 2020 as freshmen and sophomores made up 75.0 percent of FSU's roster, the highest underclassmen percentage in the country. Additionally, FSU's 13 seniors were the 6th-fewest in FBS in 2020.
