Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston says faith and family have changed perspective

Jameis Winston, Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston has had ups and downs dating back to his days at Florida State, but coming into this season he has a different outlook on life, because of his faith and his family.

Winston recently appeared on the Sports Spectrum podcast interview with Jason Romano and talked about how much different he looks at life now, because of his faith in God and the birth of his son.

“I recently got engaged. Had my first son. And it kind of overshadows, . . . once I had my son, it kind of gave me a new perspective on life because his birth, really overshadowed all the good and the bad,” Winston said, via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

“No matter about the accomplishments that I had in college, the accomplishments that I had in high school, or the adversity that I faced in college or the adversity that I faced in high school, his birth really just showed me a glimpse of what it meant for God to love us. Because he knows that we would never live up to His satisfaction. But He loves us no matter what, He is forgiving of us, his grace is so sufficient.”

Winston grew up in the church but admits during college he just used that as an excuse for some of the things he did, but now he is back on the right track and the faith is once again a huge part of his life.

It will be interesting to see if this changes his play on the field, but at least it appears his life off the field is back on the right track.
