DeCody is Ready to Go

With reps in the receiving corps wide open this spring, local product DeCody Fagg was making strides before he was sidelined with an ankle injury that – thankfully – wasn't quite as scary as it sounded. Click here to get a full update on how the talented pass catcher's rehab is coming along.

DeCody Fagg is one of approximately three dozen Seminoles that we've spotted at each and every voluntary workout so far this summer. Fagg says his ankle sprain has healed enough to allow him to participate almost pain free.

"Right now, I'm trying to get my strength back in my leg and get my routes down," said Fagg, from nearby Quincy. "I'm back at 100 percent, but I do get a little soreness every now and then. Comes with the rehab though."

Back in March, Fagg was pulled down from behind by a defender in a scrimmage situation during spring football. He was down for nearly ten minutes and had to be wheeled off the field in a cart.

"I thought it was broke because I heard two loud pops but I was lucky it was just an ankle sprain."

Up until that point, Fagg had been turned heads with his play at wideout and was getting a substantial amount of time since Willie Reid's participation was limited due to an ankle injury of his own.

He was a spectator on April 16, when the defense suffocated the offense in the annual Garnet and Gold game.

"That was my second year of not participating so hopefully next spring I'll be able to go," he said. "I wanted to show the coaches that I am capable of contributing for the receiving corps and for the team as a whole, and I think I was doing a pretty good job of that (before getting hurt). There were a couple things they pointed out that I need to get better at, but other than that I think I did a pretty good job."

Fagg says he'll be around all summer and that the importance of voluntary conditioning sessions and player-led 7-on-7s goes beyond just improving skills and fitness.

"We really want to come together as a family," he said. "We're trying to build something."

Fagg caught six passes for 53 yards in 2004.
