By now you're probably like the rest of the college football world and have fallen in love with Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston. He's lived up to the hype, displays an overwhelming amount of confidence and is carving up defenses one team at a time.

He's also racking up college football honors by the boatload.

His performance in Florida State's big 51-14 win over Clemson has earned him Davey O'Brien Quarterback of the Week honors, according to the official Florida State website. Although he's played in only six games, this is his third time receiving the honor. It's unfair and is starting to make me think he isn't human.

Winston also earned the ACC Offensive Player and ACC Freshman of the Week awards, according to the official ACC website. It comes just one day after the star quarterback was named National Player of the Week and the National Freshman of the Week by Athlon Sports.

None of these accolades should come as a surprise. The redshirt freshman didn't look his age in the first big road game of his career. He looked like a veteran from the beginning of the game and threw for a cool 444 yards and three touchdowns. He also scored a touchdown with his legs and completed a ridiculous 64.7 percent of his passes against a decent Clemson defense.

No freshman jitters for this kid.

Winston looks the part at 6'4" and certainly plays like college football’s next great quarterback. He has now thrown for 1,885 yards, 20 touchdowns and is completing 71.3 percent of his passes on the season. He's also shown great athleticism by rushing for 137 yards and three touchdowns.

He has now gained everybody’s attention and has the Seminoles on track for an ACC title and possible national championship berth. If he could lead his team to the Promised Land, it isn’t far-fetched to believe that he’ll become the third Florida State player to win the Heisman.

For now, these awards will do.
