TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- It was a struggle for Florida State running back Cam Akers to start the season; the sophomore running back couldn't seem to find his groove at the outset of the 2018 campaign.
Blame the offensive line all you want, but Akers seemed to be forcing the issue.
That is, until last week, when he rushed for a season-best 98 yards and two touchdowns.
FSU head coach Willie Taggart attributed his success to not only patience but persistence in watching film every day.
"I think him coming up and watching more film, having a better understanding of what we're doing helped him and had him become more comfortable with being patient again," Taggart said.
"Just his mentality when he came out to practice, he was practicing like he was playing in a game and it showed and it paid off for him," Taggart continued.
