Travis sees ‘positive mindset’ in Seminoles’ turnaround

Jordan Travis has played the best football of his Florida State career in the last five games. Travis has completed 68 of 105 passes (64.7 percent) for eight touchdowns and no, most importantly, no interceptions.

Travis tied a career-high with three touchdown passes in the win at Boston College, while his 20 completions and 251 passing yards are both the second-highest totals allowed by the Eagles’ defense in 2021.

“Super efficient, effective, getting us into good plays, getting us into good protections,” offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham said. “He’s seeing the game really well and he’s confident. Part of that confidence, I think the relationship with him and coach Norvell is continuing to grow and grow and grow.”

Travis spoke with the media on Wednesday after practice on a variety of topics from FSU’s receivers to the offense as well as Jermaine Johnson. Below are some highlights and the full video interview:

(On practice so far this week) “This has been our best Tuesday and Wednesday all year long honestly. Guys are coming to work. You’re not seeing mistakes and that’s the best part. Going fast. Tempo is up.”

(On seeing consistency in practices over past few weeks) “We’re taking the next step, I believe. We’re growing each week, we’re growing each day. We see guys that didn’t have the positive mindset at the beginning of the year come with a positive mindset every single day. The energy is there every single day.”

(On receiver Ja’Khi Douglas, who has a combined eight catches in the last two games): “He’s a baller. He’s a ballplayer. He comes out every week and just works really hard. He’s great with the ball in his hands. He makes big plays every time the ball is in his hands. You got to get a guy like that out there on the field.”
