Jameis Winston shares inspirational message for Jordan Travis after leg injury
Jameis Winston is in Tallahassee this weekend for Florida State’s game against North Alabama. He was honored with a jersey retirement ceremony this weekend as recognition for his great career at FSU.
However, what was supposed to be a celebratory evening for the Noles turned into a disaster late in the 1st quarter. FSU quarterback Jordan Travis was carted off the field after suffering what appeared to be a serious leg injury.
Moments after Travis left the field, Winston joined the CW’s broadcast for a live interview. He was asked about Travis’ injury and shared a profound message:
“I just want to continue to encourage him to stay resilient and continue to persevere,” Winston said on the broadcast. “I think he’s the epitome of that with his journey, his college football career. He was having one of the best years ever in college football and I’m grateful to be rocking his jersey. The significant of his number (13) with us winning the championship in 2013, and him being one of the best quarterbacks this year, man, I just want to continue to lift him up.
“Keep your head up, stay firm, be strong and courageous. The Lord has a plan for you that no man, nobody could ever even imagine. So stay resilient. And he has done that so I know to him and his family I just want to pray for his family that they’re well. He’s going to be fine. I know he will.”
Travis has led FSU to its best season since Winston left the program after the 2014 campaign. The Noles are 8-0 in ACC play for the first time since that season. They’re also on the cusp of reaching the College Football Playoff for the first time since Winston was under center.
Travis is Florida State’s all-time leader in touchdowns responsible for with 97.
