Head coach Mike Norvell saying Wednesday he’s seeing improvement and growth in what the team is investing, both physically and mentally.

He adds that’s the identity he wants his team to have as they go through the process of getting back to winning.

“They have a good spirit,” he told reporters Wednesday. ”They like playing the game of football. They really believe in what we’re trying to do an what we’re trying to accomplish. I will not allow it to be anything different, because if we can’t just give a great effort, if we can’t have a sense of urgency for improvement every single day, then what are we here for.

“And these guys, they want it.”

The Seminoles and Orange will kickoff Saturday at 3:30 p.m. The game will be broadcast on the ACC Network.
