Jameis Winston produces Instagram about his academics


Florida State Heisman winning-quarterback Jameis Winston has been busy on Instagram of late, producing videos showing him catching a pass from himself and completing one to his girlfriend.

In addition, evidently feeling the need to show off his academic side, he has produced a short video -- complete with a rather emphatic voiceover extolling his classroom virtues -- that shows off classroom ribbons he has won throughout his life.

Winston received some criticism for his post-game interview after FSU won the national championship, including from Dee Dee Bonner, former Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron's attention-seeking mom.

Winston also has received a lot of criticism for his numerous off-field issues, which include being investigated but not charged in a sexual assault and an April shoplifting incident. Late last month, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher told reporters that Winston is "a tremendous human being" who has learned from his mistakes.

Presumably, Fisher and his staff would prefer that Winston keep a lower profile. It's hard enough to deal with the media glare as the reigning Heisman winner (think Johnny Manziel) without seemingly wanting to draw attention to yourself, which is what Winston is doing.
