“If You Don’t Win, You Can’t Affect The Community Like You Can”

June 8th, 2018

America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, has been a very busy man helping children throughout the Tampa Bay area, and in and around his Alabama hometown.

And he’s learned a lot about winning.

Talk to Jameis and he’ll tell you how much the reaction to the Tampa Bay Lightning making a Stanley Cup run impacted him. He saw not just the power of fans and community support affecting a team on the ice or field of play, he saw what that can mean for a man like him who wants to be an advocate for helping kids.

“If you don’t win, you can’t affect the community like you can,” Jameis explained to Spectrum Sports via the video below.

Jameis is correct. Winning is contagious. If Jameis can become a winner on the field, then more and more people and businesses will want to be a part of his foundation endeavors.

This spring, Donovan Smith held a prominent, highly-publicized bowling event/autism research fundraiser in Tampa that was very affordable at well under $100 per person. Smith, with the help of the Bucs and lots of media, got word out that nearly every big-name Buccaneer would be in the house. Joe was there as a paid supporter but there were fewer than 100 fans attending.

How many more fans are there donating money if the Bucs had gone 10-6 or made the playoffs?

    Mike needs to be catching the ball through contact like that all the time!!

    Evans, Godwin, Howard, Brate, DJax/Hump/Bobo/Watson, and/or RoJo/Sims is one hell of a lineup of playmakers to get the ball to.

    Now, who is going to play RT and RG? That might be important.

    @ 813

    I told you i am too old to play tackle or guard. Now leonard “wester” seems to be the right age. Having said that, i believe you are sleeping on caleb. He played pretty good for a 2nd year player. Its will also help now that they have him concentrating on one position.

    Kudos Jameis.

    Think he has his best season. Cause If he struggles ,everyone may be gone.

    As Al Davis use to say, “Just win baby”…

    Winning is the magical elixir that cures all the ales you…This team isn’t far off; heck how many games has our kicking game cost us since Jameis been here. We never replaced Matt Bryant; now he’s over in Atlanta putting together a nice career. The bottom line is, we have to find a way to win games instead of finding ways to lose them.
