jameis-winston-heismanFlorida State quarterback Jameis Winston became the youngest player ever to win the Heisman Trophy this weekend in New York City. The 19-year-old beat out five other finalists by a landslide, earning 668 first place votes.

The teenager led Florida State through an undefeated regular season racking up 3,825 passing yards and hit receivers in the end zone 38 times for touchdowns. Thanks to his superb play, the Noles will face No. 2 Auburn in the BCS National Championship Game.

Watch him answer questions from reporters after the ceremony below:

Winston was dealing with serious off-the-field drama until a few weeks ago. A woman claimed the quarterback sexually assaulted her in December 2012, but the Florida State Attorney refused to file charges, saying there was not enough evidence to get a conviction.  The woman’s attorney Patricia Carroll  is asking for an independent review, stating, “I don’t have any faith in the nature of the investigation.”
