Jameis Winston flipped the ball to the referee and darted for the student section. Most of the No. 1 Seminoles followed, having outlasted Notre Dame in a 2014 matchup of power brands and undefeated playoff favorites.Cameron Erving bolted for the referee, who was jogging for the north end zone. Florida States left tackle didnt want a word with the official. He wanted the ball. As Florida State players celebrated, Erving took the ball and nestled it tight under his right arm. The tape on that arm had R.T. inscribed on it.The ball was destined for Rick Trickett, the offensive line coach who spent the Seminoles biggest regular-season game watching from afar. The night before, Trickett had suffered a mild heart attack, but his offensive line wanted to provide him with a memento from the game he missed.It was only a few years earlier that members of that line, among the most talented in school history, considered quitting on Trickett. The smallest person on the field, the 68-year-old delivers piercing words through his West Virginia drawl that have been known to make linemen twice his size shrink. Few coaches, if any, push players harder than Florida States 10th-year assistant.We didnt talk about it then, but later on it was like, How many times did it cross your mind of, like, do I really want to keep playing football? former Florida State lineman Bobby Hart recalled. It was probably like once or twice, but dang it was tough.Yet there was Erving, wading through the madness to get the ball for Trickett. Though former players say the stories of Trickett cutting players down to size are mostly true and often not suitable for repeating, they contend there is another side to the coach. They say it is respect rather than fear that drives linemen to play for a coach who stands 5-foot-9 and weighs no more than 160 pounds.Those are the conflicting feelings that playing for Trickett engenders. On a scale of 1 to 10, Hart, now with the New York Giants, said the difficulty of playing for Trickett is at a 20.But being worth it? On the same scale, thats a 100, he said.Trickett credits the Marines for his coaching style. He would have joined Navy if the uniforms werent so ugly; instead, he enlisted in the Marines.He deployed to Vietnam, and after leaving he was put on a ship in the Mediterranean under Joseph Franzias direction.Touch football was a Sunday ritual in Franzias unit, and he noticed two things about Trickett through those games.He was aggressive, no question about it, and he was a leader of men -- even at that age, said Franzia, now an executive at Bronco Wine Company. Some people stand out whether 18 or 20, and you can tell theyre destined for great things.Franzia learned as an officer that soldiers gravitate toward those who have mastered the art of communicating -- and it is an art, he said. Even though Franzia was only a few years older than those under his direction, they followed.He said its the same principle with Trickett.A lot of the guys respect what hes been through and what hes come from -- going through the Marine Corps, growing up with not having much, Chance, one of Tricketts three sons and a former Florida State recruiting assistant, said. Another thing is they respect hes not a politician. What you see is what you get, and its always the truth.Trickett says hes trying to tap into every bit of potential a player has.I owe them to get everything theyve got in them out, and Im going to do that by whatever means I have to do, Trickett said. I kind of learned a little bit of that in the Marines. They got more out of me than I ever thought I could do. When you teach a guy how to work, thatll stay with him forever.They know I care about them. I just show it in different ways sometimes.Those ways have chased players out of his programs. Willie Anderson played for Trickett at Auburn from 1993 to 1995, and he said he understands why some would disagree with Tricketts methods. Anderson welcomed the intense coaching, noting he never felt it crossed the line and that hed let his son, Jair, a freshman receiver at Georgia Tech, play for his old position coach.Anderson said playing for Trickett is about combating the mental warfare. Thoughts of Sunday morning game review kept the lineman grounded after Saturday wins. Anderson said Tricketts goal was for his line to dislike him so much, it created a bond among the starting five.Hes definitely not for the weak of heart, but in the end its what a lot of men need. Hes not for everyone, Anderson said. I could understand why a lot of guys wouldnt agree with it.It was actually the sour dispositions of another two offensive line coaches that ignited Tricketts almost 40 years coaching the position. He was a part-time tight ends coach at West Virginia when the co-offensive line coaches couldnt get along. So Trickett was moved to the line.After about two days I just kind of knew that this is where I wanted to stay, Trickett said. I like the mindset. I like the work ethic.Over the next several decades, he earned a reputation for being one of the most demanding and foul-mouthed coaches in the country.At a recent Florida State open practice, Trickett threw his hat at his right tackle when he wasnt down in his stance in time. Hell bring a player down to his eye level and break him down as the rest of the team watches. Its the kind of coaching the Florida State linemen say they signed up for.Junior guard Wilson Bell said opposing coaches let him know during his recruitment what awaited if he signed with Florida State. Bell committed anyway, and he said for the most part the stories are true.I dont want a coach whos going to baby me and tuck me in at night. Im a grown man. He respects us as athletes and knows we have so much more to give, Bell said. So when we slack off, of course hes going to get mad. He wants us to be just as passionate as he is and give everything we got. Thats why we love him so much.Tricketts rants have landed him in trouble. When Bobby Bowden brought him to Tallahassee in 2007, Bowden told him to tone down his outbursts. Trickett said that advice was good for me. The old man upstairs knew I probably needed [Bowden] and I thank him for that.He said hes a calmer coach now, but he isnt going to change his methods.The day I cant coach them aggressive, Trickett said, thats the day, hell, I go back to West Virginia.If that happens, at least one current coach wants to see Trickett land in the College Football Hall of Fame, which allows only head coaches.Hes demanding but he truly cares about his guys. Hes a hard-ass, but there is a different side and hell defend his guys, said Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez, Tricketts boss for six seasons at West Virginia. Hes good at what he does and has put an awful lot of people in the NFL -- some who had no chance before Rick Trickett.Anderson spent 13 seasons in the NFL and was selected to four consecutive Pro Bowls. All five starters from FSUs 2013 national championship offensive line are in the NFL. Since 2011, eight of Tricketts linemen have been drafted, including three in the first two rounds. Four are starting for NFL teams.Hart, a seventh-round pick in 2015, is the top reserve on the Giants offensive line and is competing to start at right tackle.I definitely wouldnt be playing for the New York Giants without him, Hart said. The things he teaches you hang your hat on: being tough when everything doesnt go right, not folding when you face adversity. When he curses you and is making you push sleds when youre dead tired, he wants to see if youre going to quit. Once you show you wont, nothing will be harder. http://www.packersrookiestore.com/Packers-Kyle-Murphy-Jersey/ .
