Jameis Winston is doing well in his pursuit to be a two-sport star.

The former Hueytown high school star and Heisman Trophy winner has been named a third team preseason All-American by Baseball America.

The Florida State star led the football team to an undefeated record and a BCS national championship last month.

Winston was a consensus All-American at quarterback.

He helped the Seminoles baseball team advance to Super Regionals last season. Winston started 22 games in the outfield in addition to being a relief pitcher.

He batted .235 with seven doubles, three triples and scored 21 runs scored. As a pitcher, Winston went 1-2 with a 3.0 ERA in 27 innings.

Florida State opens the baseball season against Niagara (N.Y.) on Friday, February 14.
