Jameis Winston is an American football quarterback player who’s well-known as one of the top players of Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League (NFL). Before fame and prior to his professional debut to NFL, he was a top-performer quarterback in high school. In his freshman years in college, he had played for the Florida State Seminoles and became the youngest player to win the Heisman Trophy. He was regarded as one of the best players during his time with Seminoles and had contributed much on their victory during the BCS National Championship Game in 2014. His time with the Seminoles ended after he was drafted as the first overall pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2015 NFL Draft.
Before he made his professional debut with Buccaneers, Winston was already building his name as a footballer by his winning streaks during his college debut wherein he completed 25 out of 27 passes with a rushing touchdown that led them to victory against the University of Pittsburgh in the 2013 season. Not long after receiving multiple awards in a year, Winston won the Heisman Trophy, which placed him ahead of quarterbacks Jordan Lynch, Johhny Manziel, Tre Mason, Andre Williams, and AJ McCarron. The Seminoles lost in a match against Oregon during the 2015 Rose Bowl semifinals, giving Winston his only defeat in his entire playing career in college. Winston scored 26-1 as a starter and acquired 562 out of 851 passes for 7,964 yards, 65 touchdowns, and 28 interceptions before he was officially drafted by NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2015.
