Winston Doesn’t Like ‘Famous Jameis’ - Lost Lettermen

Winston Doesn’t Like ‘Famous Jameis’

October 11th, 2013| by

The heroics of Florida State freshman QB Jameis Winston have led many to dub him “Famous Jameis,” a nickname that both describes his exploits and rhymes. Winston, however, would prefer it if people gave the moniker a rest.

“It’s just another nickname,” Winston told reporters on Wednesday. “My nickname is obviously Jaboo [JAY-boo], that’s what most people on the team call me. And when people call me Famous Jameis, I go ‘I’m not famous, we’re famous. Our team is famous because that stuff comes with winning.’ ”

Are we sure this guy’s a freshman? He gives sound bytes that are upperclassman in quality.
