Seminoles looking to senior receiver for big year

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida State wide receiver Bert Reed has some things he'd like to prove.

Reed has been inconsistent, with too many dropped passes, running poor routes and even skipping classes. And yet, he heads into his senior season as the sixth-ranked Seminoles most reliable receiver.

Reed ranks sixth in career catches at Florida State with 141 and would join Ron Sellers and Peter Warrick as the only Seminoles to reach the 200 mark in receptions if he can duplicate the production in either of his last two seasons.

He has matured into the type of threat coach Jimbo Fisher has coveted since arriving at Florida in 2007.

Fisher, Reed and the Seminoles are a four-touchdown favorite to defeat Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday in the season opener for both schools.
