If you thought Tim Tebow was prophetic in his BCS National Championship Game prediction, wait til you see this video of Trent Dilfer conversation with Jameis Winston in 2011.
This conversation took place at the Elite 11 camp, which is a competition among prep quarterbacks that starts off regionally and ends with 11 quarterbacks competing on a national stage. The camp is sponsored by ESPN, which likely explains why Trent Dilfer was involved.
Dilfer raves about Winston’s smarts and was particularly impressed with Winston’s ability to learn quickly. He told Winston that he would be playing in the NFL one day if he wanted to. And then he made a prediction:
“It’s going to come down to 3rd and 7 in the fourth quarter, down by 4, and they’re going to keep you in the pocket. They’re not going to let you be fast and quick and all that. And that’s going to be a mistake because you’re going to beat em’ here. And that’s what I’m most impressed with,” Dilfer said, as he pointed to his head.
And that’s pretty much how things turned out on Monday night. Winston faced a 3rd and 8 from the 10 with his team down four. On the very next play, he threw the game-winning touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin.
Just like Dilfer said it would happen.
