GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Florida State’s Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference men’s athlete of the year. Maryland women’s basketball player Alyssa Thomas earned the award for the league’s women.

Winston led the Seminoles to a national championship in football and was the closer on the baseball team. He was named MVP of the BCS championship game and set NCAA freshman records with 4,057 passing yards and 40 touchdowns. Winston added a team-high seven saves and a 1.08 ERA on the baseball diamond.

Thomas won her third consecutive ACC women’s basketball player of the year award in 2014 and led Maryland to the Final Four. Her 2,356 career points and 1,235 career rebounds are school records. Thomas was the No. 4 overall pick in the WNBA draft.
