There are things about Jameis Winston we know:

  1. He won the Heisman Trophy in December.
  2. He and Florida State won the national championship in January.
  3. He stole some crab legs last week.
  4. He's a pretty decent janitor.

Yup, even No. 4 is true. The quarterback, who generally uses his arm to throw game-winning touchdown passes, used it to guide a mop on the floor of North West YMCA in Tallahassee, Fla., this weekend — a stipulation of the 20 hours of community service he was forced to serve after shoplifting $32 worth of crab legs.

Ray Purvis, the Capital Region YMCA president and CEO confirmed to For The Win that Winston did "janitorial work" four straight days for five hours at a time, last Thursday through Sunday.

“In talking with the staff that supervised his experience, he did some cleaning, mopping, some general cleanup, custodial kinds of activities, and he interacted with some of our members on the fitness floor, and by all accounts was well received,” Purvis said. “My staff person tells me he came in and had a good attitude and performed the community service and completed that obligation.”
