The list of former Seminoles in the NFL just grew by one as it was announced that Florida State ball boy Frankie Grizzle, AKA the Red Rocket, has joined the Atlanta Falcons.

The red-headed Grizzle gained notoriety during the Seminoles 2013 national title run and even caught the eye of NFL star J.J. Watt, who tweeted about him.
