There were a small group of former FSU players at the Seminoles first practice under Mike Norvell this morning. Todd Fordham, who played offensive line at FSU from 1992-1996, quarterback Charlie Ward (1989-93), cornerback James Harris (1978-81) and fullback James Coleman (2002-2005) made the drive over to watch the start of the Norvell era in-person.
Both former standouts left Tallahassee impressed with the intensity and effort demanded by the coaches and what they got in return from the players. Coleman was especially impressed with the attention detail given by the staff and Fordham was impressed with the energy and intensity on the practice field.
Fordham, who is now an assistant coach at Jacksonville Bolles High, shared his thoughts with the Osceola on what his impressions were this morning. He also shared with us what he has been doing since his retirement from the NFL. Watch the video for more from Fordham:
