Jameis on Paying College Athletes: “Free Education is Enough For Me”
There is a crab legs joke in here, but I am going to leave that for rest of you.
During the ACC media day, Jameis was asked what he thought about college athletes getting paid and being a student athlete in general. Here is what he had to say via PFT.
“It’s very important to me,” Winston said. “I was always raised as a student first and an athlete second. . . .
“I think that’s the main purpose in college. Some athletes lose that perspective. It’s about being a student-athlete, and not just getting that easy money and going to the league. Even if kids leave early, I would want them to come back and get that degree.
“We’re blessed to get a free education . . . and that’s enough for me.”
