FSU QB Jameis Winston is considered the chosen one by many Seminoles fans, but some are taking the hero worship too far.
TMZ Sports reports that an unnamed individual distributor started selling shirts of Winston in which he’s depicted as Jesus Christ, with wording “The Chosen One | 2013” at the top of the shirt.
Winston’s face is superimposed on the body of Jesus Christ and the No. 5 is printed on his chest.
According to the TMZ report, 100 shirts had been sold for $20 each as of Friday. The person selling the shirts has reportedly been sent a cease and desist letter by the school.
Winston, a redshirt freshman, has thrown for 718 yards and eight touchdowns to one interception, completing 78.1 percent of his passes through three games.
