Freshmen running backs Lamar Lewis and Jamaal Edwards continue to shine in Florida State's scrimmages. Saturday was no different.

Lewis carried the ball six times for 82 yards, and provided the one-two punch alongside Edwards during a 74-yard drive by the offense, their best of the afternoon.

"It was good I got a feel of what its like to be on the first team," Lewis said.

"They made a lot of good blocks and I just tried to make some big plays to show coach that I'm ready to play."

Playing time during the regular season may still be relatively sparse since Lewis, like most freshmen, says he still has a lot to learn about his new offense.

When Lewis came to Florida State he had to adjust to running out the I formation, after playing a wing-T in high school. To help adapt, Lewis has turned to veterans Leon Washington and Lorenzo Booker both on and off the field.

"I learned a lot from Leon (Washington) and (Lorenzo) Booker," Lewis said.

"They've been helping me a lot with learning where to go, what to do on the passing schemes, and how to read the defense. They're good role models to look up to."
