07:25 AM ET 09.03 | In case you didn't believe it, Antonor Winston went to dig up the notebook itself. The notebook is tattered and faded, but the words are still clear. The pages are filled with carefully printed instructions written by -- as the inscription at the top of the first page reads -- Jameis Winston, Hueytown Middle School. Page 1 begins with a list of the characteristics a good quarterback should possess: leadership, dedication, desire, mental toughness, character, confidence. It concludes with a detailed schematic breakdown of how to properly attack a Cover 2 defense. Jameis Winston was 12 years old when he wrote it. ... Antonor, his father, doesn't believe it, either. That's hype. The reality is so much better.

Pretty good start to a career.

Statistically, I totally agree, but it WAS Pitt on the other side of the ball, who I will note is the Redheaded Step of the ACC.

Wow. That article about JW is through the roof. What a pedigree. I think we're looking at the next Hesiman winner, folks.

That'll fit the "pursuit of excellence with integrity" clause nicely.

Think I shared this last week.

Rumor around here is he wanted to play for KK and turned down schollys from some pretty good schools. Parents can easily afford to pay for college.

Not another off-the-field JFF, I should hope.
