70 Days Until Seminole Football

#70 – Josue Matias

Offensive Line – 6’6″ 331 lbs – Senior

Josue Matias is another guy that you just think, wow, he’s already a senior.  Matias is a grizzled veteran at this point, though, with 29 consecutive starts going all the way back to his freshman season in the Champs Sports Bowl against Notre Dame.  In 2013, he was named to the Coaches All-ACC 2nd Team and the Media All-ACC 3rd Team.   Matias is a massive man that was originally thought to have been brought in at tackle, but has made a home for himself at the left guard position.  Excellent in pass blocking and a very good run blocker, he and the rest of the Seminole offensive line played a large part in setting numerous ACC and National offensive records last season while rewriting the FSU record book.  Matias will most definitely have a future in the NFL as he’s already rated among the top offensive guards in the nation.

From the history books….
