Jameis Winston has officially been declared the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner for the best player in NCAA football.
His big game came against Clemson, who were ranked in the top five teams in college football, where Florida State defeated the Tigers by a resounding scoreline of 51-14.
That game made Jameis Winston the front-runner for the coveted award, and despite competition from other top college stars it was always going to be 'famous Jameis' who came out on top.
However, it has not been an easy season for the 79th Heisman trophy winner, as he had to fight a lot of adversity to get to where he is today.
Particularly, certain rape allegations were filed against him last year, though the case was not taken to court due to a lack of evidence after an investigation.
It has been a testament to the Florida State quarterback that with such incidents arising about his past, in what was a crucial moment in his college football career, he still managed to play at a standard required by Heisman Trophy candidates.
Overall, the Red Shirt freshman quarterback had 3,820 total passing yards, 38 touchdowns, and a 67.9% rate of completion for his passes. That accounts for one absolutely outstanding season.
That outstanding year has meant that he has led Florida State to and undefeated season and to the BCS National Championship game, which will be played against Auburn on January 6.
Putting all his troubles aside, Jameis Winston has been undoubtedly the best player in the NCAA this season. He won the Heisman by the seventh largest margin in the history of the trophy's presentation.
It has truly been one outstanding season for 'Famous Jameis'.
