A year after Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel took the world by storm, another redshirt freshman burst his way into the mainstream college football world in 2013, Florida State QB Jameis Winston. Winston not only matched Manziel in the Heisman area, but he led the Seminoles to their first national championship since 1999. With all of that, a lot of attention came Winston’s way, as well as the university. So, it would only seem logical that FSU officials would reach out to the Aggies for advice on how to handle the madness, and that’s exactly what they did.
Florida State sports information director Kerwin Lonzo recently spoke with Warchant.com where he revealed that the ‘Noles did indeed reach out to the Aggies’ administration for some friendly advice.
“I don’t think there’s a blueprint in place,” Lonzo told warchant.com. “I know compliance has had conversations with Texas A&M …(about) how to maneuver through this situation.”
Winston’s fame just continues to grow, seemingly by the minute, and that fact is only made larger with his participation on the Seminoles’ baseball team this spring. Florida State’s recent exhibition with the New York Yankees was talked about more than some regular season Major League Baseball games are in the media.
Manziel and Winston–while because of some different circumstances–are on the same level of stardom, so it makes sense that FSU would reach out to College Station.
