Lonnie Pryor Diary Entry

Lonnie Pryor's senior season has been going as he'd hoped. He has reached his goal in yards and his team is bound for the playoffs. In his latest diary entry Pryor talks about getting past the 2,000 yard mark, being bestowed Mr. Okeechobee, and among other things how the Seminoles are doing this year.

Entry No. 24

This season has been going well for me. I had a goal to get 2,000 yards rushing on the season. This past Friday I go there as I rushed for over 220 yards. I was very happy when I got it. They made an announcement during the game when I got it which was cool. Hopefully this week I'll get over 2,200.

We are 7-2 right now. The game this Friday is our last game before the playoffs. We have Clewiston this week. They are a 3A team who's going to the playoffs so it should be a good game. I've heard they are pretty good but I think we're going to win.

Last week was Homecoming. I didn't get nominated king, but I was chosen for Mr. Okeechobee. That's the one I wanted because it's for the person who represents the school the best. It was a fun weekend; I had a ball. We went to Chili's before and then went to the dance. I danced all night!

The Clemson game is the first one I've missed this year. I usually don't plan ahead with the visits so I had told the coaches I was coming. I didn't realize at the time that it was Homecoming weekend here so I couldn't go to the game. I caught the last 5 minutes of the game on TV. I will be going up for the game versus Boston College this weekend.

I can't wait for the Florida game; it's going to be my official visit. I don't know what to expect from the official but I hope that FSU beats Florida. If they do I am going to talk so much crap it's not funny. When I get back I'd talk as much as I could. We had a parade here this week for the game. For some reason there are so many Gator fans here. I wore an FSU shirt under my jersey. People were talking smack saying go gators….every time they did I lifted up my jersey to show them the shirt. The whole week leading up to the game I am going to wear FSU stuff every day.

I think the game is going to be good. FSU's offense has been playing well. The Georgia Tech game was terrible. Had they won that one they'd be a top 10 team now. There's a lot of talent there now with Antone, Corey Surrency, Jermaine (Thomas) and the other guys. One of the biggest differences has been the play of Christian Ponder. When the 2009 class comes we are going to be even better.

I don't think I am going to run track this year. I want to get ready for FSU. I'm 200 pounds now but I want to get bigger so I can play next year. I think I am going to spend the spring working with one of my coaches here at the school.
