The Early Read: Stork Talks Offensive Line

It's Monday morning and Florida State has the day off before another busy week of practice. I'm still going through some of the interviews from Media Day but in the meantime here's part of a brief conversation with redshirt junior OL Bryan Stork. Stork has been all over the line early on in camp lining up at tackle and center and providing stability at both. 

Here's what Stork had to say:

Now that pads are one how is line doing?

"We're doing very well, we're a lot bigger than we used to be a we're a tad bit mean."

Who is the most improved?

"I'd say Josue (Matias, G, So.) he's come a long way as far as knowing what he needs to, before he was just big and strong and bulky, now he's starting to understand the whole picture and he's really done a great job of doing that."

How long does it take for an offense line to gel?

"I think it takes a bad season. And it takes a good spring, and a good summer."

And you guys had that?

"Yep."

What has the line said amongst itself in regard to some of the pressure it faces this season?

"Do your job. That's the motto of the year."

Finally, do you prefer a certain spot along the line, team-first attitude not withstanding?

"I like playing them all. I'd say right tackle because you get to be in a two-point stance and you can see everything, but I really enjoy playing everything."
