After Florida State’s 45-7 victory over Duke on Saturday, Jameis Winston was interviewed by Heather Cox on the field. As reported by Yardbarker.com, the ABC reporter was persistent in getting an answer about the sexual assault allegations that resulted in no charge.
Jameis Winston graciously answered three questions while including his teammates with praise. He talked about how Florida State wasn’t allowed to mention the BCS title game, and how they focused on each individual game throughout the year.
However, the fourth question about why he decided not to talk to the media during the process of the investigation caused Winston to walk away from the post game interview.
It’s still wise for Jameis Winston not to talk about the night in question, but this could be a major focus during Heisman week. Plenty of reporters will try to get answers when there may be nothing to say.
For one, it’s obvious that Jameis was advised by his legal team not to utter a word about the allegations. One thing of note is that Jameis Winston talked about getting more mature, and making better decisions. As you see in the video, he maturely walked away from the interview.
Florida State is likely playing Auburn in the BCS national title game.
