Florida State ball boy Red Lightning gets interviewed, put through gauntlet (Video)

Florida State Seminoles ball boy Frankie Grizzle-Malgrat has gained a lot of nation attention for his “Red Lightning” highlight reels. He has been acknowledged during broadcasts of the game, and been featured on a Reddit “Ask Me Anything.”

Grizzle-Malgrat is headed to the BCS National Championship game as the Seminoles take on the Auburn Tigers in Pasadena, Calif., on Jan. 6, 2014.

Seminoles reporter Jonathan Schillace interviewed Grizzle-Malgrat about his new found fame and put him through a bit of a ball boy boot camp or gauntlet if you will.

Grizzle-Malgrat on his new found fame: “I take a lot of pictures with a lot of girls. Let’s put it that way.”

During his 40-yard dash, his “4.24” time wasn’t fast enough according to Schillace. He says “I thought they called you Red Lightning not Red Molasses.”

It is a pretty funny interview and video, check it out:
