Winston's dad: Jameis will play two more years at Florida State

HUEYTOWN, Ala. — The father of Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston says the quarterback will play two more seasons at Florida State.

"We want Jameis to succeed with one more year in baseball (he is a reliever) and two more years in football," Antonor Winston told "We've never strayed from our plan that he is going to be in college until he gets that degree."

Antonor said Jameis — who won the Heisman last year as a redshirt freshman for the national champion Seminoles — changed his major from pre-med to engineering. Jameis entered college with a boyhood goal of becoming a podiatrist, his father said. Antonor said he expects Jameis to graduate in December 2015 along his current course of study.
