Bio

Jameis L. Winston was born in Bessemer, Alabama on January 6, 1994. A quarterback for the Florida State University Seminoles, he became the youngest college football player to ever win the Heisman Memorial Trophy in 2013, at the age of just 19 years and 342 days. Winston is a two-sport athlete and as well as football, he also plays baseball for Florida State.

Winston attended Hueytown High School and soon developed a reputation as a serious quarterback prospect. He was selected as a High School All-American by USA Today in 2011 and was named as the ESPN RISE Elite 11 MVP the same year. Winston officially signed with FSU in February 2012 and was considered amongst the best quarterback recruits in the nation by many sources.

Having redshirted behind EJ Manuel during the 2012 season, Winston made his debut in a 41-13 victory against the Pittsburgh Panthers in 2013. He was the standout performer in the game, completing 25 of his 27 passes, including four passing touchdowns. His promising debut was a sign of things to come and over the course of his first season, Winston registered 4,057 passing yards and 40 passing touchdowns, setting Atlantic Coast Conference and Division I FBS freshman records in the process.

His remarkable playmaking skills led the Seminoles to a dominant season, where they posted a 13-0 undefeated record in order to win the ACC Championship, with Winston being named as the ACC Player of the Year and the Most Valuable Player for the ACC Championship Game. In the 2014 BCS National Championship Game, Florida State lined up against the Auburn Tigers and emerged victorious, winning 34-31 in a classic game to collect the school's third National Title. Again, Winston was the star performer on the team, completing 20 of 35 attempted passes and contributing two passing touchdowns. He was subsequently named as the game's offensive MVP.

In addition to his 2013 Heisman Trophy win, Winston was the recipient of the Walter Camp Award and the Manning Award, was selected as a Consensus All-American and was named as the College Football Player of the Year by the Associated Press.
