Noles’ Winston Slowly Earning Jimbo’s Trust

Seminoles_Jameis_Winston_2013TALLAHASSEE — As Jameis Winston trotted off the field following a highlight-worthy 12-yard touchdown pass to tight end Nick O’Leary, he thanked each of his offensive linemen on the sideline before turning to his head coach.

The play had been miraculous, with the redshirt freshman escaping a near-certain sack by spinning away from two Maryland Terrapins defenders before firing a laser in the back of the end zone.

But along the sideline as shock and elation washed over the faces of Winston’s teammates, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher had a much different facial expression.

“He always has those little smirks,” Winston joked after the game. “When he has that smirk, he’s about to tell me that I did something wrong. [But] he’s also about to tell me, ‘Great play, but don’t let it happen again.’
