"And the FSU basketball team, love 'em!"

Shooting tips from the Seminoles, not a bad way to spend the afternoon, and I'm not just talking about the kids.

Jason Rich said, "To be able to teach little kids to play ball, and kind of be a mentor for them anybody would love to do that."

Ralph Mims said, "It puts a smile on my face when I see kids my sister’s age and kids that really don't have the chance to experience this opportunity."

The Seminoles spent their afternoon putting on a clinic at the Boys and Girls Club, a little bit of shooting, some dribbling, and a whole lot of fun.

Tank Ackerman said, "I think this is awesome that FSU gets to come out and I think it's good that our kids are able to finally touch that person that they see on Television."

Basketball may be their specialty, but the Noles also bring another message.

Mims said, "Stay positive, stay in school and what's right, you can accomplish anything."

Like perhaps being part of the team?

Diante Monroe said, "I want to participate on their team for FSU 'cause it’s kind of hard to teach how kids can shoot well and win a championship."

Of course, first you have to get the ball for them.
