The news is encouraging out of Florida State University football concerning quarterback James Blackman and his health. 


New FSU head coach made it clear that the young signal call is on the right track, and is putting in serious work in the weight room. 


​"He's moving that direction. He's already gained about 13 pounds. He's still frail a little bit there, but he's a lot bigger than he was before," Taggart stated.

Blackman, a quarterback who is only officially listed as 185 pounds, had a solid year in the games that he was actually healthy. In only 7 games, he threw for eight touchdowns and 1,285 yards. 


The Seminoles will face a daunting schedule next season and need maximum health to compete. In March, five months before the season officially gets underway, the news is at least good so far. FSU will need Blackman to be at full health next season. The same can obviously said about Deondre Francois.
