Jameis Winston Takes the Mic on FSU Media Day

By  | 

TALLAHASSEE, FL-- There's no greater amount of pressure, expectation, or total number of eyeballs on you then when sitting on top of the game. Right now, the Florida State Seminoles enter the 2014 season with the biggest bullseye in the sport, except that's just the way the team likes it.

FSU's coming off their third national championship in program history and while hosting their Media and Fan Day Sunday, were just 20 days away from beginning what they hope is their quest towards a fourth.

The program as a whole discussed those repeat aspirations, wanting and needing to return to the field, especially last year's Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston, who demanded a lot of attention from the press, just as he demands his teammates to keep their eyes on the prize this year.

"Gotta stay hungry," said Winston. "And I'm constantly on guys because we always have to have that chip on our shoulder. By natural reasons, we're playing with a purpose. And as long as we know our purpose, everyone will have their individual chip on their shoulder."

Winston also touched on topics like forgetting individual goals, growing and maturing, and his relationship with head coach Jimbo Fisher.

"I've only been here for three years and once you get to know and be around people and get to learn them, you're always gonna be closer. You can either come closer or you can separate. But with Coach Fisher, I love him. I love him. There's nothing I can really explain, it's just when you know somebody genuinely is there for you, you always have that true respect and that love for them."
