TALLAHASSEE — Florida State wide receiver Justin Motlow caught one pass in his final game at Doak Campbell Stadium on Dec. 2. Motlow hauled in a 2-yard pass from quarterback J.J.
Cosentino on a third down and 7 with 2:32 left in the Seminoles’ 42-10 win against Louisiana Monroe.
The victory boosted FSU’s record to 6-6 and paved the way for an invitation to the Independence Bowl in Shreveport, Louisiana against Southern Miss on Dec. 27. (See the Jan. 31 Tribune for coverage). The win also highlighted the interim head coaching debut of Odell Haggins, who was named the temporary replacement in the wake of Jimbo Fisher’s departure to Texas A&M. A few days after the victory, Willie Taggart was named FSU’s new head coach.
Motlow, a Seminole Tribal member from Tampa, has played in four games this season and has four receptions for 27 yards and one touchdown. He has one year of playing eligibility left, but has said he plans to graduate this spring and won’t return to the team.
