GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Jameis Winston would rather look to the season ahead as the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback for reigning national champion Florida State. He also knows he has to answer questions about his off-field conduct.
The sophomore said he understands ''what it is to be a leader'' and he's working to ''hold myself to that standard.''
Winston was investigated for sexual assault during last season. A prosecutor in Tallahassee, Florida, decided in December not to charge him due to a lack of evidence and gaps in the accuser's story.
Then in April, he was cited for walking out of a supermarket without paying for crab legs and crawfish.
Winston says he has ''learned from my mistakes'' and is focusing on the season.
