The Florida state football team has had their fair share of accomplishments this season. They add another one today with a proclamation from the City of Tallahassee honoring their championship win.

Just moments ago, there FSU players walked out of these elevators in city hall to a crowd of people cheering them on.

Those players were all three superstars on the team, Lamarcus Joyner, Rashad Greene and Jameis Winston.

They headed into the City Commission chambers and also received a warm welcome. That's when Mayor Marks, an FSU alum, read a proclamation honoring their amazing 2013 season.

Then the three players spoke, Winston adding in his humor in his remarks as he does frequently.

We'll have more video of the ceremony tonight at 11.
