The Florida State Seminoles are 'Playing For Payton'

IMAG0121

Here's a story to brighten your day. Payton Poulis is a young man with a condition similar to Cerebral Palsy, it affects his motor skills and limits his ability to speak and move freely. 

A lifelong Seminoles fan, Poulin overcame great odds to graduate high school and was accepted to Florida State as a freshman this past year. After striking up a friendship with FSU WR Kenny Shaw in one of their classes, the Seminole football team invited Payton to become a regular fixture at practice -- a part of the team -- and he has been there, on the sidelines of the All Dunlap Practice fields, every day since.

Seminoles.com's Scott Kotick did a fantastic job on this piece, it's definitely worth watching.
