Florida State's Jimbo Fisher Reminisces on West Virginia Roots

Posted: Updated:

They say you cannot move forward without staying true to your roots.

Jimbo Fisher is proving that to be true.

Fisher has led the Florida State Seminoles to the 2014 BCS National Championship Game in Pasadena, California, while showcasing a level of domination unrivaled by any other team in college football. The Seminoles marched through the 2013 season with an unblemished record of 13-0.

Florida State named Fisher as the Seminoles' Head Coach in 2010, replacing the NCAA's All-Time wins leader in former Head Coach Bobby Bowden.

It's been a long process for Fisher, working his way up the coaching ladder. With stops at Samford, Auburn, Cincinnati, LSU and Florida State, Fisher has put in the time in order to get to the level he's at now.

Many people in North Central West Virginia remember John James Fisher as simply "Jimbo". The hometown boy has carried the same workmanlike attitude with him throughout his coaching career, while holding Clarksburg, West Virginia close to his heart.

The ACC Digital Network recently featured Fisher in a piece created for 'FSU's Road to the BCS Championship' series. In the story, Fisher takes you to his hometown of Clarksburg, during which he opens up about his family life and the rigors of coaching Division-I Football.
