Well, it certainly didn't show in the end result on Saturday.
Cismesia, Florida State's true freshman kicker from Bradenton nicknamed "The Weed" for an early growing spurt, made quite a favorable impression in his debut.
Cismesia converted field goals of 23, 29, 27, 40 anhd 43 yards in the Seminoles' 29-7 homecoming victory over Duke at Doak Campbell Stadium.
Cismesia, taking over the placekicking duties for senior Xavier Beitia, also converted his only two extra-points to finish with 17 points.
Cismesia, who had hoped to to ease his nervousness with an early extra-point or two, nailed three first-quarter field goals, including one that skimmed the left upright and went through.
"I thought I would be kicking extra points all day," Cismesia said.
"After I hit that one (second), I said, 'Please come back.' I still have to prove myself for job secruity here. It hit the upright -- I could see it was going left. Once it went through, I felt the relief."
Cismesia's heroics came in front of family members and his girlfriend of one year.
"That meant a lot to me because my family has been behind me," Cismesia said.
"My dad and I would always go out to the field and practice. All of them have given me their full support. Without them, it wouldn't be happening."
