"He started kicking better. I think he hit 7-for-7 in our last kicking scrimmage," head coach Bobby Bowden said. "That's what you want, you know, the consistency part of it."
There was a time when the coaching staff considered using a committee of kickers. While Cismesia struggled to find a rhythm, Chase Goggans was on the mark from short distances and Graham Gano demonstrated his deep range.
But after a meeting with former FSU kicker Bill Capece during the middle of two-a-days, Cismesia was able to correct his problems and regain some lost confidence.
"I was pulling my head and I wasn't following through straight," Cismesia said. "It was minor stuff that I should've corrected on my own, but having another guy that kicked helped."
