Back at the 2011 Elite 11 Finals, Trent Dilfer had a conversation with Jameis Winston that foreshadowed things to come for the young signal-caller.

As it turns out, Dilfer provided Winston with a situation that was close to what he encountered on Monday night en route to leading Florida State to the BCS National Championship.

Pep talks often include scenarios of clutch situations for the athlete to envision, but this was about as accurate as possible. 

Good call, Dilfer.


Hat tip to's Ashley for the find.
