Florida State Seminoles’ quarterback Jameis Winston had what must be considered the best freshman season in the history of college football.
In fact, it should probably be considered one of the greatest seasons of all time regardless of class.
Winston completed 257 of 384 passes for 4,057 yards with 40 touchdowns passing, four touchdowns rushing and just 10 interceptions. He led his team to a perfect 14-o season, which included a game-winning drive and touchdown pass in the finals seconds in the Seminoles’ 34-31 victory over the Auburn Tigers in the BCS National Championship.
Winston spoke with the media on Sunday in Fort Worth, Texas as he accepted the Davey O’Brien Award, an award given annually to the country’s best quarterback.
After discussing his baseball career and telling reporters ” it would be a tremendous honor to follow in the footsteps of the Bo Jacksons and the Deion Sanders,” Winston talked about his next football goal.
“That’s our little slogan — from Dallas to Dallas,” Winston said with a smile via the Associated Press. “Hopefully, we’ll end up in the last game.”
Winston’s Seminoles will start the year against the Oklahoma State Cowboys at AT&T Stadium and hope to finish the season there when the College Football Playoffs’ first National Championship Game takes place.
