Heisman Trophy Winner Clouded in Controversy

Ad Feedback

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston took home the Heisman Trophy Saturday but the road to that honor was clouded with sexual assault allegations.

The alleged incident took place about a year ago, but prosecutors recently decided not to file charges of sexual assault against him.

The 19-year old college football star has also refuted those allegations.

Still, Winston was the overwhelming favorite to win college football's greatest honor. He won in a landslide vote, taking home the award in the seventh-largest margin of victory.

Winston is also only the second freshman to win the Heisman. He set records with 3,820 yards passing and 38 touchdown passes.  He led the No. 1 Seminoles to a 13-0 record.

Winston was selected as the Walter Camp player of the year and he received the Davey O'Brien Award as the best college quarterback.
