FSU football begins voluntary workouts

Florida State football began voluntary, offseason conditioning workouts on Monday morning for the first time since the sports world stopped on March 12.

A number of FSU players returned to campus on May 15 and were quarantined for two weeks, the Osceola previously reported. This was done in anticipation of the NCAA allowing a resumption of workouts, which the organization has allowed effective June 1.

Face coverings are mandatory for staff, coaches and football players who are in campus buildings, according to an FSU spokesperson.

Football players are screened (temperature and wellness check) prior to entry at the Moore Athletic Center daily.

Details about Monday’s workouts are not yet known but a source previously told the Osceola that players would be divided into small groups, possibly by position, when they were in the weight room at the Moore Athletic Center.

Strength and conditioning coach Josh Storms posted his excitement at a return earlier this morning:


FSU is believed to be the first ACC school to begin the voluntary workouts. Clemson and Louisville are among the schools announcing they would resume on June 8.

Men’s and women’s basketball teams have not begun their voluntary workouts, school spokesmen confirmed to the Osceola. Only football players are allowed to use FSU facilities for voluntary workouts at this time.
