BCS National Championship Game: Jameis Winston fakes dropping trophy (GIF)

The Florida State Seminoles barely had to fight at all during the duration of their 2013 season but they were in the fight of their lives on Monday in the BCS National Championship game. The Auburn Tigers gave the Noles all they could handle but somehow, someway Jameis Winston managed to lead his team from behind to win the team’s first National Championship since the Bobby Bowden era.

But while Winston’s season was side tracked for a while by controversy, he was all smiles after the game and was even in a joking mood when he was handed the national championship trophy after the game.

Winston first couldn’t wait to touch the trophy and when he finally did, he pump faked it, cuddled it, stoked it and even pulled the classic fake drop prank on his teammates.


Yeah, “fake” drop. Either way, Winston pulled together perhaps the finest season a freshman quarterback has ever had in college football and even if you think other freshman quarterbacks have had better freshman years, none have done what Winston just did which is cap off the season with a national championship win.
