There's a big hole in Florida State's offense that the Seminoles need to fill if they want to be successful this fall. The loss of Jameis Winston to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers leaves Jimbo Fisher's program with a big question mark at the quarterback position. 

There's another sizable hole on the sidelines. 

Frankie Grizzle-Malgrat, a.k.a "Red Lightning," has also moved on to the NFL. The Florida State ball boy who gained serious notoriety during FSU's national championship run in 2013 is now with the Atlanta Falcons. His journey to become the league's best ball boy begins today.
