Jameis Winston Lost His Heisman Trophy

Jameis Winston has lost the actual Heisman Trophy he was awarded while at Florida State. He told Dan Patrick that he gave it to his dad and has no idea where it is. Winston says he's hardly seen the thing since receiving it in 2013. He said his dad treats the trophy like it is his son, and he is always displaying it somewhere.

I get that he is trying to play down the whole vanity thing, acting like he has no idea where the award is, but c'mon dude. I'm not buying that he doesn't know exactly where that thing is at all times. You can act like you're humble and all about the team with no regard for individual accolades, but the world will give you a pass for the Heisman. If you win the most prestigious award in college football, you're allowed to have it in a trophy case at home without being labeled as an arrogant prick. 

It's the freaking Heisman; if I had one of those it'd be the first thing you see when you walk in my front door, maybe I'd even have it on the nightstand, who knows? You show that award off every chance you get. Lax on it with the humility Jameis, this is too far.
