NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has been selected as the Walter Camp player of the year.

The redshirt freshman is the second player from Florida State to win the award, joining quarterback Charlie Ward in 1993. Winston also is the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy on Saturday.

The other finalists were Texas quarterback Johnny Manziel, Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron and Boston College running back Andre Williams.

Winston has set FBS freshman records for yards passing (3,820) and touchdown passes (38), leading No. 2 Florida State (13-0) to the BCS championship game against No. 2 Auburn. His 190.6 passer efficiency rating is tops in the country and on pace to set an NCAA record.

Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o won the Walter Camp last year.
