Jordan Travis: The Unprecedented Drive to Succeed

Jaheim Bell flashed open on a seam route — between defensive coverages — in the course of the first quarter of Florida State football’s 41-3 win on Saturday against Syracuse at Doak Campbell Stadium. Quarterback Jordan Travis saw his tight end wide open. An accurately thrown pass by Jordan would have resulted in a 47-yard touchdown. But Travis overthrew Bell, and the incompletion left Travis visibly frustrated.

The Seminoles are usually not hitting “explosive plays” or plays of 20 yards or more at the identical rate as last yr once they finished second within the nation with 97. They’re currently tied for forty fourth nationally with 34, though they’ve 20 within the last two games.

Travis, a redshirt senior, was upset with himself when he overthrew Bell. It didn’t help that the drive ended with a field goal as an alternative of a touchdown. “My team knows that all the pieces I do is because I like them and I need to be perfect for them,” Travis said of him showing his emotions. “I need to exit on each play. I feel like every drive I need to attain. So after we don’t rating, I feel like I put it on myself. Nevertheless it’s never going to affect the following drive. It’s just how I’m. I need to compete each drive, each play, and exit and dominate.”

Travis has thrown for 1,482 yards, 13 touchdowns, and one interception this season. He accomplished 23 of 37 passes for 284 yards and a touchdown against the Orange. FSU, led by Travis, is hungry for more because the No. 4 Seminoles’ (6-0, 4-0 ACC) face Duke (5-1, 2-0) at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Doak Campbell on ABC.

The intensity of the fourth-year FSU player is just not just limited to the football field. “I’m a competitor at the tip of the day, I walk out of the quarterback room and need to be the primary guy that walks out,” Travis said. “Every little thing’s a contest for me. And I believe it’s an incredible thing to have playing quarterback, and I’ll never lose that. All my teammates know my emotions. I’m all the time going to place things on myself. It just comes with playing quarterbacks, it’s how I’m. I even have emotions and I do not think it’s emotional.”

Growing as a pacesetter, Travis has thrown 871 profession passes at FSU, and the all-time leader in total touchdowns (86) in program history takes every pass seriously. He admits to also displaying more emotion during games in comparison with past seasons. “I do know what we’d like to do on offense, and it starts at the pinnacle,” Travis said of his leadership. “So I even have to return out on each play and provides all the pieces I even have. Obviously, I mean, we’re not perfect. We’re human. We make mistakes. There are throws that I will miss and need I could get them back. You only should be ready for the following play. You see me frustrated, but I tell myself I refer to myself somewhat bit in the sport. Next play, ready for the following play and it doesn’t affect anything.”

Jordan Travis is worked up for the matchup against Duke, Riley Leonard. The Seminoles have collected big wins against LSU to open the season and Clemson in Week 4. Saturday’s matchup will pit them against an opponent that has been ranked all season and opened with a 28-7 victory over Clemson. The Blue Devils lost a detailed game (21-14) to Notre Dame to finish September. Nevertheless it was one which showed they’ll hang with the higher teams in college football.

“Yeah, I’m very excited,” Travis said. “Obviously a ranked opponent, a extremely, really talented team that may be very disciplined, too. Nevertheless it’s one other opportunity to exit and show what we do. It is often about us and can ceaselessly be about us. So just take it day-to-day, win the day, each day.”

Duke QB Riley Leonard missed the Blue Devils’ 24-3 win over North Carolina State last Saturday with an ankle injury he sustained on the ultimate play against the Irish. Leonard is listed as “day-to-day,” but second-year Duke head coach Mike Elko said Leonard could possibly be available against the Seminoles. “I’ve said this to everybody, we is not going to put him able to place that ankle in danger,” Elko said on his weekly radio show. “But I do think there may be a likelihood we’re in a position to get him back healthy on Saturday and in a position to be playing at the extent he’s able to playing.”

Travis met Leonard on the Manning Passing Academy in June when the pair served as camp counselors. “I met him on the Manning Passing Academy,” Travis said. “Yeah, he’s a extremely special kid. I reached out to him after he got injured a few weeks ago. We talked somewhat bit back then. Yeah, man, he’s an incredible player. Looking forward to competing against him.”
