When Jameis Winston isn't tossing touchdowns, he's busy specializing in frozen ropes. 

SportsGrid reminded us all that Florida State's quarterback is pretty darn swell at throwing things.  

On Monday, the 18-year-old redshirt freshman helped Florida State annihilate Pittsburgh, 41-13. Winston also threw himself into the mix (albeit early) for the 2013 Heisman race. 

The Alabama native completed 25 of 27 passes for 356 yards and four touchdowns, catching the attention of an entire nation looking for the next big gridiron star. 

Winston has a cannon for an arm that he uses to complete passes and throw baseballs, but he does so in far grander proportions than we are used to. 

You can savor the above video, which shows Winston providing a laser beam of a throw to get a runner out at home, or you can see the Yahoo! Sports highlight of him tossing out someone who had the audacity to think he could go for an extra base and got nailed at third. 

Then again, you can just watch this highlight reel from his freshman baseball season, including his work on the bump. Rumor has it that he was even pumping 90 mph fastballs during the season: 

If that kind of velocity isn't enough, he changes speeds with a clever little curve that freezes the first hitter in the video. 

Many of us were amazed with his arm on Monday night, but his talents are far deeper and farther-reaching than just football. 

Give this guy an object and he will throw it a mile. Now sit back and enjoy the season, which will feature one of the most impressive sights in sports at the moment: Winston tossing bullets.
