Report: July 5th will be Jameis Winston Day

Al.com is reporting that July 5th will be Jameis Winston Day in Hueytown, AL.

The now-retired high school stadium where Winston finished his Golden Gopher career in 2011 will be the venue for those communities to honor the 2011 Parade All-American, 2013 Heisman Trophy winner and National Champion.

Council member Fran Zinnerman said the City of Hueytown will present Winston with a key to the city. The city also plans to affix two permanent signs in the community to honor Winston.  Zinnerman added,

“After he won the Heisman and he led Florida State to the championship we knew that we would do something to recognize that.  That was a great accomplishment.  We wanted to recognize him as a Heisman Trophy winner, a graduate of Hueytown High and a resident of Hueytown.” 

Stephens said to look for the football program to retire Winston’s old high school number sometime in the future depending on the next time he’s in town.
