Jameis Winston is normally calm and poised, both on and off the field.
But the unflappable Florida State quarterback is admittedly feeling some anxiety as the Heisman Trophy ceremony approaches.
Winston is one of six finalists for the Heisman, which will be awarded in New York on Saturday night. Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, Auburn tailback Tre Mason, Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron, and Boston College tailback Andre Williams are the other finalists.
Winston has completed 237 of 349 passes for 3,820 yards, 38 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. Winston set Football Bowl Subdivision records for passing yards and passing touchdowns by a freshman.
Winston has also helped guide No. 1 FSU (13-0) to the Seminoles and the BCS National Championship Game. The Seminoles take on No. 2 Auburn (12-1) on Jan. 6, Winston's birthday.
Friday, an attorney for the woman accusing Winston of sexual assault outlined what she said was a failure of authorities to properly investigate.
"This was an investigation of a rape victim," Patricia Carroll said, "not an investigation of a rape suspect."
