2014 Outlook: Possesses the athleticism, intelligence and poise to push Sean Maguire for the backup quarterback job. Spent his first season as a standout on the scout team, which was highlighted by his performance as Auburn dual-threat quarterback Nick Marshall in the practices leading up to the national championship. A sprinter on Florida State’s track team, he can make plays with his legs, but also has a college-ready arm. Completed 5-of-10 passes for 103 yards and a touchdown in the annual Garnet and Gold game in the spring, including an impressive 19-yard scoring pass to Jarred Haggins in the final two-minute drill.

2014 FSU Track and Field: All-ACC member of the conference championship indoor and outdoor track and field teams...ran a leg on the ACC champion 4x100 relay team and advanced to the finals in the 100-meter dash at the ACC Outdoor Championships...posted a season-best time of 6.82 in the 60-meter dash during the indoor season - a mark that ranked 17th in the nation among NCAA Division I football players.

2013: Scout team quarterback during redshirt campaign...shared Offensive Scout Team Player Award with Wilson Bell at end-of-season banquet.

PERSONAL: Outstanding athlete who starred as a run-pass quarterback at South Plantation and will get a chance to play that position with the Seminoles...was also recruited by a number of programs as a cornerback ... led South Plantation to a 9-2 record, including a trip to the FHSAA 8A state playoffs...possesses outstanding speed, having been timed at 4.38 in the 40, which is backed up by his fifth-place finish at the 4A state track & field championship in the 200... held a 3-star ranking from ESPN, Rivals, 247, Scout and PrepStar...outstanding student-athlete who had offers from both Air Force and Navy...selected Florida State over Tennessee.
