Jameis Winston Broke His Twitter Silence To Thank His Teammates, Coaches After Winning Heisman

Players on Florida State’s football team are not allowed to use Twitter during the season, according to a policy instituted by head coach Jimbo Fisher back in 2012. But an exception was made last night for Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston, who became the first FSU player to win the Heisman Trophy since Chris Weinke back in 2000. Winston took the opportunity to thank his coaches and teammates for helping him win the award.

Winston will need the help of his coaches and teammates again in just a few weeks when the Seminoles take on Auburn in the BCS National Championship Game.
