The postseason honors continue to roll in for Jameis Winston, with the Florida State easily staking his claim to one of the most recognizable honors in the sport.
Tuesday afternoon, the Associated Press announced that Winston has been named as its 2013 Player of the Year. Winston becomes the first Seminole to claim the AP award, which was first handed out in 1998.
And, not so unexpectedly, Winston claimed it by a rather comfortable margin.
Of the 56 members of the media who voted this year, 49 of them voted for Winston. The only other players to receive votes were Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch (three), Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron (two) and Boston College running back Andre Williams and Michigan State cornerback Darqueze Dennard (one each).
Since the end of the 2013 regular season, Winston has taken home, among others, the Heisman Trophy, the Walter Camp National Player of the Year and the Davey O’Brien Award. He’s also a consensus All-American and was named as the ACC’s overall, offensive and rookie of the year, the first player to ever sweep all three honors in a single season in the conference’s history.
