Florida State head football coach Jimbo Fisher delivered a great speech at the Northwest Florida All Sports Association banquet on February 12. The purpose of the event was to recognize and honor athletes from all stages and levels in their sport from the local area, or ones that have moved away yet still have ties to the region. In addition to that, thanks to the benefit, they were able to give out over $115 thousand dollars in scholarship money that was directly beneficial to the Okaloosa County Special Olympics, Boys and Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast, the FCA and the Eleanor Johnson Youth Center. These awards were handed out after Coach Fisher gave his speech, and he commented that he was honored to be a part of the event and help make it special in any way he could.
The Clarksburg, West Virginia native grew up playing football and ended up attending and playing for Salem University, which is now called Salem International University. He played there from 1985-1986 before transferring to Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama for one year, and then went on to briefly be a part of the former professional football team, the Chicago Bruisers. Fisher soon retired from playing and switched gears towards a career in coaching, and from 1988-2007 he bounced around between working for Samford, Auburn, Cincinnati and LSU before landing a spot with his current team, the Seminoles of Florida State University.
The 2013 Rawlings Football College Coach of the Year recently spoke for the Northwest Florida All Sports Association banquet to help honor and benefit local athletes and organizations. It was a fun celebration and hit home for Fisher since he has been a resident of Florida for so long.
