Just cancel the ceremony in December for the Heisman Trophy and give the bronze stiff-armed statue to Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston after the clinic he put on at Clemson.

The stuff Winston is doing on the football field is borderline criminal and to think he is a redshirt freshman with six career games under his belt, and it’s truly frightening to think about how good the 6-foot-4, 228-pound field general can be.

Winston continues to impress with every game and on the biggest stage he’s seen all season he threw for 444 yards as Florida State put up 51 points, which is the most allowed by Clemson in Death Valley.

He threw for three touchdowns and ran one in for good measure, as well. Winston had to prove that he is in fact a human being and not a cyborg sent from the future to show us how to play quarterback as he did toss an interception.

My favorite part about the Hueytown, Ala. native is the fact his first words out of his mouth after the Seminoles flat embarrassed Clemson on their home turf was about how great his team was and how much he loves his head coach Jimbo Fisher. He credited each of his receivers by their name immediately after the game showing he does not come from the same cloth as last year’s Heisman trophy, Johnny Manziel, who ought to give his vote to Winston right now.

We are all witnesses to the next big thing in college football. He’s going to win the Heisman Trophy and may get Florida State into the BCS Championship Game. We also need to cherish what we’re seeing in college football because after next year he’s going to be the top pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
