Q & A with Drew Weatherford

Last February Florida State landed the top quarterback in the country by landing the state of Florida's Mr. Football in Xavier Lee and Class 4A Player of the year in Drew Weatherford. Earlier in the week, The Territory interviewed Lee, last night it was former Land O Lakes standout's time to chat.

With Chis Rix's graduating, do you expect the quarterback job to open up this spring?

Yes, but I haven't heard anything official yet. However, I do hear it will open up. My goal is to be starter by the Miami game.

What are you doing to prepare for the spring and the fall?

I'm starting to throw. I'm going to start throwing with Chris Davis, Willie Reid, Decody Fagg, Greg Carr, and Lorne Sam if he's healthy. With our workouts and everything, we don't have much time to throw during the week so we'll also go over the weekends.,br>
How much film do you watch during the week?

At the Gator bowl, we all got portable DVD ,players so before I go to bed I watch the Miami game. I probably watch about four hours a week.

Who do you thing will be the breakout wide receivers?

I think it will be Willie Reid, Chris Davis and Decody Fagg's chance to shine. Decody is as well known but he has so much potential. He's so physical. If Lorne Sam gets healthy, he's got a chance because he's so explosive.

Who do you hangout on with off the field?

I hang out with a lot of guys. Of course, my roommate Jeff Berniard. Others are Chris Davis, Lamar Lewis and Jamar Edwards. I'm also very good friends with Jae Thaxton and Lawrence Timmons. I'm very close with Xavier (Lee). We got study hall together.

Are you a big fan of using a tight end?

Yes, you can't have an effective offense without using a tight end.

How do you think Florida State should utilize their offense next year?

I think that Leon Washington should get as many carries as possible. Lorenzo (Booker) should get a lot of carries also.

How is your ankle?

Its's a 100% now. I should be getting a medical redshirt approved.

Who would you like to see have a breakout year?
I hope it's me.
