Jordan Travis sets big goal for 2023 season: 'I came here to win a national championship'
Jordan Travis has his sights set on winning a National Championship during his final season at Florida State.
In an interview with Pro Football Focus this week, Travis put the emphasis on winning it all in 2023 — as opposed to any individual accolades like the Heisman Trophy.
“Listen, I would’ve loved to be where those guys were,” Travis said, referring to the Heisman Trophy finalists in 2022. “But not because of the Heisman ceremony. Because three of them got to play in the College Football Playoff.”
Travis is expected to be an early-season favorite to win the Heisman in 2023. He’s one of the top returning quarterbacks in the country after throwing for 3,214 yards this past season.
“It’s a blessing to be talked about for an award of that magnitude,” Travis added. “But again, I came here to win a national championship. I didn’t come here to win a Heisman.”
Florida State is expected to contend for a College Football Playoff berth next season. In addition to Travis, the Noles return key stars like Jordan Travis, Johnny Wilson and several other starters.
In 2022, FSU won 10 games for the first time since 2016.
