Heisman Trophy

December 15, 2013 by  

Heisman Trophy, From the first snap, the season has belonged to Jameis Winston.

Now the 2013 Heisman Trophy does as well.

Winston, Florida State’s redshirt freshman quarterback, has proven to be college football’s most consistent and dynamic signal caller this season. From his efficient debut against Pittsburgh to his elite performance on the road against Clemson, Winston never crumbled under pressure.

Thanks to his poise, leadership and superior skills, Winston became the third Seminoles player and second redshirt freshman to win the Heisman Trophy.

Winston was presented the award during a ceremony Saturday night in New York that was broadcast nationally on ESPN.

“I really never focused on would I be here or not. I always focused on, ‘Guys, we need to get to that national championship; we need to keep getting better,'” Winston said. “I had a good feeling. I knew if we kept playing good, and I knew with the numbers around me, people being productive and if we kept blowing people out the way we were. … I knew I would have a shot.”

As expected, Winston beat reigning Heisman winner Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M, Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron, Auburn running back Tre Mason, Boston College running back Andre Williams and Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch.

Winston received 2,205 points. McCarron came in a distant second place with 704 points, creating the fifth-largest margin of victory in the modern Heisman era, despite Winston being left off 115 ballots.

“This is the first time I’ve been speechless in a long time,” said the normally bubbly Winston, who was choked up while accepting his award.
