Being the first member of the Seminole Tribe to play for Florida State University, Justin is interviewed by a reporter with the Seminole Tribune.

TAMPA, FL-Justin Motlow is the first member of the Seminole Tribe to play football for Florida State University.

The tribe has lent its name and history for the school's mascot. But the 18-year-old Motlow is the first Seminole to make the squad and he's excited about it.

"I would have for sure thought somebody would have been before me," Motlow, who will be attending FSU in the fall, told The Tampa Bay Times. "It's really crazy."

Motlow spent most of his early years on the reservation. His grandmother is a fluent speaker of Miccosukee.
