HUEYTOWN, Ala. - Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was born in Bessemer and starred in baseball and football for Hueytown High in Alabama.  This weekend Winston will be honored at an event at the field where he starred in high school.

Hueytown Chamber of Commerce director Rebecca Williams says the state of Alabama and the towns of Bessemer and Hueytown will present proclamations honoring Winston, who led the Seminoles to a national championship and became the youngest Heisman winner.

Williams says Winston's Youth Football League plans to present him with a framed jersey.
