Jameis Winston honored by Alabama Sports Writers Association

Florida State’s Jameis Winston will be named the 2013 Alabama Amateur Athlete of the Year by the Alabama Sports Writers Association this Sunday evening.

When asked about the reward, Jameis’ father told USA Today,

“Any award from the people of the state of Alabama is special to our family.  An honor like that coming to Jameis from his home state while he’s off playing in Florida means something to us.  That’s special. Any award from the people of the state of Alabama is special to our family.”

Jameis Winston will join Heisman Trophy winners Mark Ingram (Alabama) and Cam Newton (Auburn) in receiving the honor from the Alabama Sports Writers Association.
