Jordan Travis opens up about relationship with Mike Norvell: 'He's like a second dad'
Jordan Travis is having a career-year for Florida State this season.
The Seminoles quarterback led his team to a 4-0 record to start the season, and has continued to play well despite a three-game losing streak.
Overall, it’s been a resurgent year for Florida State in Year 3 under coach Mike Norvell. The Noles have a chance to win 8+ games in a season for the first time since 2016.
In an appearance on the Gramlich and Mac Lain podcast this week, Travis spoke about his relationship with Norvell.
“I love him a lot,” Travis said. “He’s kind of like my second dad. I’ve never had a coach that cares for me this much. He coaches me really hard at the end of the day but he loves me a lot. He cares about how I’m doing after the game, whether I played good or bad.
“I think that’s really special. Obviously not a lot of people see him. They see some guy that tries to act all tough all the time but he’s a sensitive guy and he cares about us a lot.”
Here’s video of his comments about Norvell:
