“I don’t even now what’s going on right now,” Winston said to ESPN shortly after winning the award. “Honestly, I’m just so happy…So overwhelmed by this thing man. I don’t even have anything to say. This is the first time I’ve been speechless in a longtime.”

Winston, 19,  becomes the youngest Heisman winner ever. He also is just the second freshman to win the award — Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel did it last season.

Winston set freshman records in passing yards (3,820) and touchdown passes (38), while helping lead the Seminoles to a berth in the BCS National Championship game versus Auburn.

Winston destroyed the competition in the voting, earning 2,205 points. Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron came in second with 704 points.
