Seminoles’ Jameis Winston: Jimbo Fisher is a perfectionist


Miami Herald Writer

Along the Florida State sidelines during any given game, it’s not uncommon to see coach Jimbo Fisher get into the face of his quarterbacks. Redshirt freshman Jameis Winston actually enjoys it.

“That’s what I would do if I were a coach,” Winston said Wednesday. “He’s competitive. He wants everything to go perfect. He’s a perfectionist, and that’s one thing you want in a coach You don’t want a coach to allow you to do bad things and let little things go by.”

• After going 25 of 27 for 356 yards and four touchdowns in his first career road game, Winston is looking forward to this weekend’s trip to Boston College.

“I just love away games, period. I think they’re just fun games, and we get to travel, so that’s always fun,” Winston said. “I’ve never been to Boston before, but I’ve heard it’s pretty nice.”
