Jameis Winston needs assistance. So says his father, Antonor Winston.
After another run in with Johnny Law a couple weeks back, Mr. Winston isn’t the only person who thinks the Heisman winner needs a little guidance. But here’s what the senior Winston told USA Today on the subject of a 24/7 handler:
“He’s supposed to have somebody around him 24/7. He’s a Heisman Trophy winner so (he’s) definitely not supposed to be by (himself)…It’s just a different standard for (Jameis) and Johnny (Manziel). He’s just got to endure, just make better decisions and he’s just got to endure that.”
So while Mr. Winston may not be suggesting the Dez Bryant treatment for his son, he does feel that he needs someone around at all times for support.
As easy as it is to make jokes about this, the Heisman winner’s father is correct. Jameis Winston does need assistance. He does need someone around him at this point to tell him what’s right and wrong. It sounds stupid, because we’re talking about a 20-year old adult, but the crab leg incident reminded us all that Famous Jameis is still an immature individual.
When you’re walking out of super markets with the five finger discount applied to seafood, there’s a good chance that you’ve got a lot of growing up to do. No one is perfect, but something of that nature is inexcusable for a high-profile college football player.
We’ll have to wait and see if FSU appoints someone to assist Winston, but it seems like it’d be a good decision.
