61 Blake Snider
Rugged interior lineman who is a very good run blocker. Best asset is his strength which allows him to be a force for the defensive line to handle. Missed spring practice with an ankle injury but will be back for the fall. Will provide added depth at guard and also at tackle.
Missed the season taking care of a leg injury after having a strong spring practice when he began getting repetitions with the first team offense at right tackle after spending the majority of his prior time at guard. 2009: Played in four games, including the final three of the season, with most of his action coming on special teams...saw his first action with four snaps at guard when the Seminoles went on the road and routed No. 7 BYU...was a member of FSU's 2008 signing class but delayed his enrollment until January 2009 and immediately stood out with a solid initial spring practice.
A prototype Rick Trickett signee who was not as highly rated but demonstrated the toughness and work ethic necessary to succeed...father was the defensive coordinator at Cleburne County (Ala.) High...member of the Pigskin Round-Up All-Star team in 2007 after his Cleburne High team advanced to the Alabama 4A state playoffs...worked hard to return for his senior season after suffering a torn ACL in a 2006 state playoff game...chose FSU over Samford and Troy...born June 23, 1989.
