The Florida State Seminoles are your new No. 1 team in the BCS rankings. A win over Duke in the ACC Championship game would assure them a spot in the BCS National Championship game, and it is all thanks to one man.

Not coach Jimbo Fisher. Not quarterback Jameis Winston. They owe it all to Seminoles’ ball boy Frankie, A.K.A. Red Lightning.

Honestly, I’ve never paid much attention to a ball boy in a football game, so I don’t know if this level of enthusiasm is standard or par for the course. He is constantly sprinting up and down the sideline with footballs.

The jumping in to celebrate on the field with the players, that seems a little out of the usual and out of the ordinary though. I especially like the little shove he gives a Florida Gators player.
