The coaches have changed, the helmets have changed, Sammy Seminole is gone but the one constant in Florida State football for forty-six years has been Smitty. For those players from the sixties and early seventies he is the face of Seminole football.

I am glad he will be back... there will be some remaining tradition to hold on to.
