Jameis Winston Looks To Continue To Add To His Legacy Against Clemson Tigers

Jameis Winston has been one of the great stories in College Football. He has lit up the college football scene, as he has his Florida State Seminoles as the fifth ranked team in the country.

What Winston is doing as a true freshman is scary. He has all the physical tools in the world — a great arm, vision and touch, and escapability in the pocket, as well as electric athleticism and running ability. Winston is the complete package at quarterback.

Believe it or not, there is a distinct chance there could be two straight years where a true freshman wins the Heisman Trophy. Johnny Manziel had a magical year no doubt, but Winston has been just as impressive, if not more so.

IF Winston’s Seminoles team beats the No. 3 ranked Clemson Tigers on the road, they have a legitimate chance at the National Championship. If Winston leads his team to the promise land while having a monster season, I don’t see how he wouldn’t be the Heisman front runner at that point.

College football fans have been privileged all season to watch Winston play. He is the best freshman quarterback prospect to come around in a long, long time. When his time comes, he will be a very high draft pick in a quarterback-needy NFL. His ceiling is out of this world, and with the way spread offenses are starting to make the jump to the next level, Winston will be in high demand by a number of teams.

Winston’s biggest test comes today. If he passes it with flying colors, we could be seeing the second straight true freshman take home a Heisman Trophy.
