Thursday's Conditioning Report

In groups organized by position, the Florida State football team took part in various speed and agility drills today under the direction of strength and conditioning coach Jon Jost. In addition to several walk-on players, there was an excellent turn out of scholarship athletes in the 90-plus degree Tallahassee sun.

Following the drills, the players once again stayed after to take part in the player-run workouts. The offensive lineman stayed and did some blocking drills before engaging in a playful game of two hand touch that was very entertaining, to say the least. I believe I saw Frady catch a long wobbly touchdown pass from Lunford on one play.

The rest of the offense stuck around also and after 10 minutes or so of one-on-one passing against the defensive secondary, the players organized 7-on-7 skeleton drills.

Today, Lee was not the only quarterback to throw as Weatherford (minus the large walking boot and sporting an ankle brace) took his turn running the offense.

Weatherford did have good movement but it was obvious that he was careful as to not step or plant too hard on the rehabbing ankle.

I kept track of the passing and receiving stats and they are as follows:

Quarterbacks:

Lee: 7-of-13 with one interception by Ingram, Weatherford: 10-of-12

Receiving:Hallback: 4 receptions, Carr: 1 reception, Carter: 2 receptions, Edwards: 1 reception, Coleman: 1 reception, Harrington: 2 receptions, Root: 2 receptions, C.Davis: 2 receptions, Cromartie: 1 reception. A walk-on also had a short reception

All but two of Weatherford's completions were short and accurate to the tight ends. Those two completed passes were to Edwards out of the backfield and Carr on a 20-yard out-route.

Lee had a few long passes, a few drops and had the highlight of the skeleton drills when he hit Cromartie on what had to be a 75-yard reception.

Former Seminole Bryant McFadden was in attendance as was Sims' father Ernie II and younger brother Marcus.

Of note: Today was the first day that was Nicholson was in attendance at the voluntary workouts... Carter was very impressive at the tight end position and showed no signs of troubles with his knee, making hard cuts after his receptions... McFadden worked with the defensive backs on the speed and agility drills and interestingly enough, wore an Atlanta Falcons t-shirt.

Quote of the day: "I am trying to get my head a sun tan." – B.J. Dean when asked about his newly shaved bald head.
