If Jameis Winston needed any more validation of his decision to play two major college sports, the Heisman Trophy winner from Florida State found it on Monday when he accepted the Manning Award as the top quarterback in college football.
Jameis Winston has won the Heisman Trophy, making the Florida State quarterback the second straight freshman to win the award.
Jameis Winston walked away with another major award Thursday night, the latest national prize to put on his mantle.
The Heisman Trophy will be presented Saturday evening in New York City. Winston’s name should be at the top of the list as college football’s most impressive player from the start of the season through the championship games. Everything else after that is purely a guess.
Northern Illinois looks to become the second back-to-back BCS Buster in the history of the BCS, joining TCU. Fresno State, currently the top team in the BCS-busting Mountain West Conference, is looking to reach their first BCS bowl game. So, who has the best shot?
It takes a truly special year by a freshman to deserve the kind of Heisman respect that leads to an invite to New York. Fortunately for Florida State, freshman quarterback Jameis Winston is having just that kind of season so far.
This weekend, college football will shift its attention to the ACC. Playing in the shadows of the SEC the last few years, the ACC will offer this week’s game of the week when Clemson hosts Florida State.
