09:15 AM ET 08.24 | After weeks of kicking the proverbial can down the street when it came to naming a starting quarterback, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher finally picked redshirt freshman Jameis Winston to be his team's next signal-caller on Friday afternoon. Despite a strong showing from redshirt freshman Jameis Winston during the Seminoles' spring practice and in last April's Garnet and Gold game, Fisher gave redshirt sophomore Jacob Coker a chance to make his case over the course of FSU's preseason camp.

Freakish athlete. Throws a 95 mph fastball and can gun down runners from the outfield. Dafted by the Rangers. He will be extremely fun to watch in both sports.
