4 Days Until Seminole Football

#4 – Dalvin Cook

Runningback – 6’0″ 200 lbs – Freshman

Dalvin Cook is a true freshman runningback out of Miami, Florida that was teammates with Devonta Freeman in high school.  Cook was a consensus 5 star recruit and rated as the #2 runningback in the nation out of high school this year.  In addition, he was an early enrollee this past January for Florida State and was able to spend the offseason with the Noles.  Unfortunately, Cook injured his shoulder early in the spring and missed the majority of spring practice and the spring game.  He was able to get a jump start on college life and soaking up the playbook while learning the mental aspects of the position.  This fall he has earned praise from Jimbo Fisher and will see a lot of opportunities as a true freshman with the ball in his hands.  Cook has a great blend of explosiveness, speed, and size that should have FSU fans very excited to see what he can do for the Noles this fall and beyond.

#4 – Giorgio Newberry

Defensive Tackle – 6’6″ 285 lbs – RS Junior

Giorgio Newberry settles into his third position in three years this fall as the big man has been a team player all along doing what is asked of him by the coaches.  He came in as a defensive end and as a redshirt freshman in 2012 appeared in 12 games making 13 tackles in mostly a reserve role.  Last season, with the tight end position decimated by injuries and transfer, Newberry was asked to switch sides of the ball and provide a big body at the end of the line for blocking in jumbo and two tight end sets.  Now with a full stock of healthy tight ends again, Newberry is back on the defensive side.  This time, however, he’s put on weight and is sliding in to the defensive tackle spot.  Entering week one, Newberry is listed as the backup to Eddie Goldman at DT and should see some significant snaps.  He will have to perform well, however, with talented freshman behind him impressing this fall and pushing for playing time.  Here’s at least one Nole hoping that Newberry performs well and is a significant contributor after putting team first throughout his career.
