Fathers of 2011 signees share feelings on sons' success
The rest of Florida State's 2011 signing class arrived in Tallahassee this weekend to begin their college careers. That means many fathers' said good-bye to their sons on this special weekend. Warchant.com caught up with some of the 2011 signee's fathers to get their thoughts on what it will mean to them to see their sons decked out in garnet and gold for the first time.
Mark Nugent (Karlos Williams): I'm going to be thrilled I'm going to be very proud. When we first saw Vince come out on the field, we had tears in our eyes because it's something we always wanted for years and years, it finally came true. Seeing two of them is going to be a real proud moment. It's going be very surreal.
Derrick Mitchell Sr: I think it's going to be an real emotional day for me. I'm going to be extremely proud. Just to know he'll be playing for a great university and great football program.
Eric Beverly Sr: When he steps on the field in an FSU uniform, I'll be so excited to know that he made it. I grew up in Monticello so Tallahassee is like home to me, I grew up a Florida State fan. Eric could have selected a different road, but he picked Florida State. I can't wait to cheer, scream and holler. I'll be the loudest one out there.
What did it mean to you when he first got an FSU offer?
