The unquestioned leader of the Buccaneers Jameis Winston continues to shine within the Tampa community.
There is no one better when it comes to the Buccaneers and kids than Jameis Winston. Despite what some may want to say about him, Winston has been the epitome of class act, especially when kids are involved.
Jameis kicked off his annual kids football camp this weekend where there were 250 kids – of all ages and skill levels – taking advice and participating in drills with Winston and his fellow Bucs teammates;
Jameis also took a few minutes away to speak on 620-WDAE’s Pat and Aaron about the “Ticket to the Future” and how special that is;
"“The ‘Ticket to the Future’ is, well, I look at it as inspiration. It’s a ticket for the kids to finish high school, middle school, finish college, and have an opportunity to go and get an interview up at One Buc Place. That’s amazing. If I had an opportunity to get ‘Ticket to the Future’, I’d put it somewhere I can see it every single day to use it to inspire me to, ultimately, be a member of One Buc Place one day.”"
Meanwhile, although Jameis did take a few minutes to speak to the radio station, he wasn’t ignoring the kids by any means;
Buccaneers that joined Jameis at the camp included tight end Cameron Brate, offensive lineman Kevin Pamphile, kicker Roberto Aguayo, linebacker Kwon Alexander, defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, center Ali Marpet, and quarterback Ryan Griffin to name a few.
No, this event won’t likely get the kind of publicity or attention a misspoken sentence got when Jameis spoke to a school earlier this off-season – which is unfortunate. These are the types of things Jameis does for the kids of his community. Reaching out, helping, teaching, and mentoring. That’s the Jameis Buccaneers fans have come to know and love.
Ask any one of the 250 kids Jameis took the time to work with individually and they’ll tell you the same.
