Jameis Winston isn't content just playing one sport well in college. Even if the two sports have overlapping seasons, Winston is willing to juggle. But on Saturday, the Florida State football-baseball standout took it to another level. Winston began the day in football meetings before the team's 10 a.m. practice in Tallahassee. A redshirt freshman quarterback, Winston is in a three-way quarterback battle with redshirt junior Clint Trickett and redshirt sophomore Jacob Coker to replace EJ Manuel. After football practice, Winston hopped on a flight for Miami to join the Seminoles baseball team for that night's game in Coral Gables. Winston was impressive in three innings of relief, retiring all nine batters that he faced. "We knew this was an opportunity that might come up," Winston told the Tallahassee Democrat. "It was a long day but I didn't feel any wear and tear on my body." Winston has had a busy week. He had football practice on Monday, pitched and was the designated hitter (going 2-for-3 with an RBI double) in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to Florida in Tallahassee, and will focus on football practice again on Wednesday and Thursday. He will play in Florida State's spring football game on Saturday, and it is likely he will pitch or hit in the home baseball series against Duke, with a three-game set beginning Friday night.
