Florida Quarterback is Youngest Heisman Winner

Florida State University quarterback Jameis Winston has won the Heisman Trophy as the top player in college football.

The quarterback on Saturday became the youngest ever recipient of the award, honored at 19 years and 342 days of age.

He is the second straight first-year student to win American collage football's most prestigious award after Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel last season.

Winston was the overwhelming favorite to win the award even after being accused of sexual assault. But, earlier this month, the Florida state attorney refused to file charges against Winston due to insufficient evidence.

The Heisman Trophy "recognizes the outstanding college football player whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence with integrity," according to the trust that awards the prize.
