Winston Pop Warner Highlights Surface
That Jameis Winston guy at Florida State who we’ve been drooling over this season? Turns out he’s been a preternaturally gifted quarterback for a while.
The internet recently discovered video highlights of Winston’s 2005 season with the Pop Warner team in Hoover, AL, just down the road from his hometown of Hueytown. (He’s No. 12 in the video above.) Coincidentally, this video was shot during the same year that MTV was filming the first season of “Two-a-Days,” which chronicled the football team at Hoover High School.
What we’re most impressed with is Winston’s ability to scramble away from would-be tacklers yet still have his eyes downfield, always ready to make the deep throw. It’s as if he were preparing everyone for plays like the one he made against Boston College earlier this year.
