The 2015 Pro Bowl honoree Jameis Winston’s parents, Antonor and Loretta, instilled in him work ethics and faith in god from a young age.
Witnessing Winston, from a high school football player to an acclaimed NFL figure, has been a journey of pride and happiness for his dad and mom.
The Saints quarterback got athleticism from his parents, who were student-athletes during their early days. But it was only Jameis who carried the athletic torch to professionalism.
Nevertheless, they’ve always remained throughout his side and provided an extra push to his encouragement.

He joined the Saints in 2020 on a one-year/$1 million contract and has since signed multiple contracts- the current deal (signed in 2023) being $4 million for one year.
A redshirt sophomore of Florida State Seminoles, Winston was the first overall pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2015-20) in the 2015 NFL draft.
