Florida State announces ‘long-awaited return’ after more than 20 years away

Spirit Spear-return-Spring Game-April 14-Doak Campbell-Florida State

Florida State’s latest move may be its most popular yet under coach Willie Taggart.

The Seminoles announced on Thursday that the Spirit Spear is returning at the Garnet and Gold Spring Game at Doak Campbell:

Spring practice begins on March 21, with the annual Spring Game scheduled to be held on April 14.

The return of the Spirit Spear falls in line with the throwback theme, including vintage painted endzones and a postgame concert including Salt-N-Pepa, Vanilla Ice and Rob Base.

The spear made its debut in 1984 and was removed in the early ’90s.
