Winning the Heisman has its perks and new winner Jameis Winston is already starting to experience a couple of them.
Winston was on the set of the “Late Show with David Letterman” because he’s going to be reading the Top 10 list.

While at the taping for the show, Winston also got to hang out with Will Farrell, who is also a guest on the show.
This is probably just the beginning. Last year’s winner Johnny Manziel parlayed his win into courtside NBA tickets (though those were a present to himself for his birthday) and meetings with LeBron James. He was seen on Bourbon Street with the cast members of the show Duck Dynasty and became besties with rapper Drake.
Of course, Winston said back in August that he didn’t want to catch “Manziel Disease.”
“If I ever get Manziel disease, I want all of you to smack me in the head with your microphones,” Winston told reporters ahead of the 2013 season referencing Manziel's adventures and subsequent sharing on social media.
Sorry Jameis, you might not be able to avoid it.
