Jameis Winston picked as All-American in baseball

Published Add your comment

Jameis Winston had a pretty good freshman year as a college football player.

He won the Heisman trophy, he led his Florida State team to an undefeated regular season, and the Seminoles lifted the final ever BCS National Championship trophy in January.

But Winston isn't content with dominating one sport. He is now moving on to baseball.

He has previously stated his desire to play two pro sports, and Baseball America clearly thinks this is a real possibility.

Baseball America asks for input from MLB scouts when compiling their selections, highlighting the potential of Winston.

He took to the diamond for the Seminoles last spring as a true freshman - starting 20 games in right field and 10 at designated hitter - hitting .235 with nine RBIs.

As with last season Winston's participation in his second sport will interfere with FSU football's preparations during offseason, but Winston managed to obtain the starting quarterback jersey then and the program should again be able to work around his dual-commitments in 2014. 

Winston was previously ranked in the top 50 prep players in the nation when in high school and was a 15th round pick by the Texas Rangers in the 2012 baseball draft.
