TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The trick to juggling two sports for Jameis Winston this spring has been about the travel.
Winston missed a football practice on March 22 so that he could play baseball at Clemson. But last weekend, the logistics were challenging as the baseball team played Boston College at Kingston, R.I. So Winston instead stayed in Tallahassee with the football team, while the No. 1 Seminoles (22-5, 9-2 ACC) swept their weekend baseball series.
This week will be busy but the Heisman Trophy winner will only have a short walk between the locker rooms. Winston will scrimmage with the football team on Monday afternoon and practice Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. The baseball team has home games scheduled for Tuesday and a Friday-Saturday-Sunday series with visiting Notre Dame.
Winston could play both sports on Saturday as the football team will likely practice late in the morning and he can then break before the baseball team plays at 6 p.m.
"He’ll be able to go back forth," Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said of Winston’s schedule this week.
