Florida State QB Jameis Winston wins ACC Player of the Year


Florida State QB Jameis Winston has had one of the most successful seasons of any freshman in college football history. The ‘Noles are one win away from returning to the national championship game for the first time since the 2000 season, and that has a lot to do with the way Winston has performed on the field, and the awards he’s racked up along the way to go with that.

Now, you can add one more prestigious one, as Winston has been names the ACC Player of the Year for 2013.

 

Winston is the first Florida State player to win this award since Chris Weinke and, as said above, he’s the first freshman in history.

On the season, Winston has thrown for 3,490 yards and 35 touchdowns, and that’s all in very limited play with the ‘Noles blowing out a majority of their opponents this season and most of the starters not playing the second half.

Boston College’s Andre Williams finished second in the voting.
