Tampa Bay Buccaneers players are no strangers to media coverage. Not all of it is always good. So, when the opportunity arises, it’s important for us to see these guys out and about doing good deeds and changing lives.
Jameis Winston recently had an opportunity to execute one of these great tasks as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback got the pleasure of delivering some great news to one deserving Florida State student.
Winston has been at Florida State working out and was able to participate in a moment the student seen in the video will surely remember for the rest of his life.
Identified as Casey Jackson, the sophomore reportedly knew he was getting the scholarship. He just didn’t know how it would come.
Many fans of Winston get autographs but very few will ever have the type of experience Jackson just did, as one of his favorite NFL players and fellow Seminole got to hand deliver potentially life changing news.
It’s hard to ignore the looming investigation the NFL is reportedly engaged in with Winston regarding an incident which allegedly occurred in Arizona in 2016.
Earlier this off-season, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter voiced frustrations with the pace of the investigation.
It’s easy to linger on negatives involving players such as Winston, and at times he’s done himself no favors in that regard.
However, in this moment, it’s equally important to take time and applaud the young leader for seizing the opportunity to influence others.
