HUEYTOWN, Ala. (AP) Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston will be honored at an event at the field where he starred in high school.

Hueytown Chamber of Commerce director Rebecca Williams said Thursday that the reigning Heisman Trophy winner is expected to attend Saturday night's ceremony. It will be held at Hueytown High School's former field, Gilmore-Vines Stadium.

Williams says members of Winston's family are also expected to attend. She says the state of Alabama and the towns of Bessemer and Hueytown will present proclamations honoring Winston, who led the Seminoles to a national championship and became the youngest Heisman winner.

Williams says Winston's Youth Football League plans to present him with a framed jersey.

Winston was born in Bessemer and starred in baseball and football for Hueytown High.
