The Heisman Trophy winner and BCS Champion Jameis Winston is, to put it mildly, a talented football player. But did you know that Winston is a two-sport athlete at Florida State, also playing on the baseball squad?
Florida State's baseball team is no slouch — they went 47-17 in 2013, winning the ACC Atlantic Division — and Winston had himself a good season last year. And Winston isn't exactly an afterthought on the team, either. While a redshirt football player, the future Heisman winner made 32 starts and appeared in 41 games total. He split his time in the outfield and as DH, hitting .235 with seven doubles, three triples, nine RBIs and two stolen bases. He earned a .377 on-base percentage.
But perhaps Winston's greatest talent is, unsurprisingly, his right arm. In 17 appearances in relief, totaling 27 innings, he posted an even 3.00 ERA with two saves and 21 strikeouts. And, in watching this video unearthed by USA Today, it's pretty easy to see why. The kid's got a monster curve.
