Bessemer native and Hueytown alum Jameis Winston has grabbed his share of headlines over the last 14 months. He set the college football world on fire with his record-setting redshirt freshman season that culminated in a Heisman and a BCS National Championship for Florida State by guiding a last-minute touchdown drive against Auburn. There was also a high-profile sexual assault allegation that did not result in charges and the incident where he left a Publix grocery story with about $33 worth of seafood and did not pay for those items. He was issued a civil citation for shoplifting and was subsequently suspended by the baseball team until he completed 20 hours of community service. What does that mean for his time in Tallahassee? Will that fast-track him to the NFL draft after his redshirt sophomore season? That's not the case according to his father Antonor Winston. Winston told AL.com his family plans on Jameis playing three seasons at Florida State. "We want Jameis to succeed with one more year in baseball and two more years in football," he said. "We've never strayed from our plan that he is going to be in college until he gets that degree."
