Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston's star has grown immensely since he won the Heisman Trophy and national championship in the span of less than a month. Also growing is Winston's rap sheet after he was caught shoplifting crab legs.

So what should FSU do?

Winston's father, Antoner Winston, believes the school should have someone with his son all day, everyday.

"He's supposed to have somebody around him 24/7," Antonor Winston told Rachel Axon of USA Today. "He a Heisman Trophy winner so [he's] definitely not supposed to be by [himself]."

Winston is also a closer on the Seminoles' baseball team, and Florida State has provided extra security on the team's road trips this year, FSU athletic director Stan Wilcox said in a statement to USA Today.

"We are committed to doing everything in our power within NCAA rules to provide Jameis Winston with the resources he needs to thrive as a student and an athlete," Wilcox said. "We will continue to work with Jameis and his family to make them aware of all the support services the university has to offer."

The 20-year-old reportedly texted his father after a four-day suspension from the baseball team.

"I know what doesn't kill you makes you stronger actually being suspended was the best days of my life!

"When I get older we gone laugh at this petty stuff IM GOOD that's all that matters ignore minor comments or people that ain't livin MY life"
