At his press conference as one of the 2015 inductees into the Bucs Ring of Honor, Doug Williams explained the close relationship he and Jameis Winston have.
“Jameis and our relationship didn’t start this year," Williams said. "The year after he won the Heisman, I got a chance to do probably about four banquets with him and spent a lot of time with him. Him and I, we have been communicating, texting. I’m not a big texter, but he is at that texting age. So, I try to call him and he never answers the phone, so he forced me to text. I would text him back. We have been close, even through the whole process that he has been through. I can remember one text he sent to me. He just asked me how I handled certain things, so I called him and we talked about an hour one day. I believe in him as an individual and as a young man and I think everybody makes mistakes, whatever the mistakes are. Last night I came to town. The first guy that called me was Jameis Winston. For an hour and a half he sat with me over at Lee Roy (Selmon’s). We just sat there, talked and ate wings. It says a lot about him. You are never going to find a guy - I think I made this statement in the paper to a writer – there are only two young guys that I’ve seen that handles the public and the mic, and that’s LeBron James and Jameis Winston. He has charisma coming out of his ears.”
This is another very impressive story about the type of person Jameis Winston is. It's also very apparent that Jameis Winston has plenty of prominent people in his corner and there for support.Subscribe to The Commish Online Podcast on iTunes!
