Florida State senior tight end <b>Paul Irons </b> caught a career-high four passes for 23 yards to lead the Seminoles in receptions against Virginia last Saturday. Tt ws the most catches by a tight end in a game since <b>Ryan Sprague </b> snagged four versus the Cavs in 2000. Irons' previous career-high was three at Duke last year. The Seminoles are 8-1 in the last nine games in which a tight end had a reception. Irons would love to repeat his performance at Wake Forest on Saturday.

Florida State coach <b>Bobby Bowden</b> indicated this past spring that the Seminoles' tight end position is as deep and talented as it has been in years. FSU returns game-tested vetarans <b>Paul Irons, Matt Henshaw </b>and <b>Donnie Carter.</b> All three have the ability to catch and run the deeper patterns, giving FSU's offense yet another dimension. Irons (pictured), the lone senior, is excited about the season and says the Seminoles must take advantage of their opportunities.

With only two scholarship quarterbacks on the Florida State roster, it was important to sign a couple of big-time quarterbacks in the class of 2004. That's exactly what the Seminoles did in signing two All-Americans in Xavier Lee and Drew Weatherford. Starting quarterback Chris Rix's backup Sophomore Wyatt Sexton won't be able to throw for about another month or so. When will the freshman studs arrive to help carry the throwing load?

Junior Paul Irons arrived at Florida State as a fullback but was switched to tight end. Irons feels comfortable on the line and is looking forward to contributing this season for the Seminoles. "They've told us that they'll throw to the tight ends more. Coach Bowden's sixth thing on his list of things to do this spring is to get the ball to us more. I have faith in my coaching staff," Irons said.
