Winston arrived at Stepinac before the 2017 season as a quarterback and saw limited time. He committed to learning the wide receiver position and developed into one of the Hudson Valley’s top big-play targets.
The 6-foot-2, 180-pounder caught 41 passes for 562 yards and five touchdowns as a senior.
There were several other Stepinac football alum who signed on National Signing Day on Wednesday:
DeVante Reid, a 2017 graduated, committed to play at Trinity College. Reid, a receiver/defensive back, was injured and missed his senior season but played at Phillips Academy last fall.
David Harris, a 6-foot-3, 280-pounder, is headed to play at the University of New Haven. Harris played at Stepinac until 2016 and was at Monroe College the past two seasons. Harris was a second team NJCAA All-American last season.
Antonio Giannico officially signed to play at Pace University.
