Florida State QB Jameis Winston Wins 2013 Heisman Trophy
Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was named the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner on Saturday night, marking the second straight season the award has gone to a redshirt freshman quarterback.
Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, also a finalist, became the first freshman to win the award in 2012.
Winston won the award with 2,205 points, 1,501 more points than Alabama’s AJ McCarron. It’s the seventh-largest margin of victory in Heisman history. And while Winston won in a landslide, winning each region of the vote, he was left off 115 ballots.
Winston led Florida State to a 13-0 regular season finish that included the school’s second straight ACC Championship and a bid to the BCS title game against Auburn in Pasadena. With Winston at the helm of the offense, the Seminoles tore through their schedule with a margin of victory of more than 42 points per game.
