08:31 AM ET 03.20 | Even Jimbo Fisher says one of his newest running backs couldn't have scripted things much better. It was his first time in practice pads for the Florida State football team, and early enrollee Mario Pender wasted no time grabbing the attention of [Fisher]. "I was shocked. He did a really nice job ... A couple times you went, 'Oh, who's that.' I was very impressed with what he did out there," Fisher said after the team's first spring practice at the Al Dunlap Practice Fields. "I'm going to tell you what now, don't give him green grass down that sideline. He's got some cuts. He caught the ball well out of the backfield [Monday]." ... "He's going to get a ton of touches," Fisher said in his Monday morning news conference.

Pender will be exciting to watch. Seriously looking forward to seeing him on the field and injuries to Thompson and Freeman should give him plenty of reps this spring.

I think he is enrolled in "The History and Significance of Film" where they watch dirty harry movies and star trek episodes and then get pop quizzes.

Well, I'm not happy about the injuries, but I'm glad the New Kid can run.
