PLAYERS: Johnny Manziel
TEAMS:
Texas A&M freshman Johnny Manziel is the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner. He’s the first freshman to win the award. His numbers were better than Cam Newton’s when Newton won the award, whose numbers were better than Tim Tebow’s when he won. It really shouldn’t have been as close as it was. While Manziel won by a decent margin, he was easily the best player in the country and also the most valuable player to his team. Without Manziel, it’s possible that Texas A&M could have been a 6 – 6 team. While Manti Te’o had a spectacular season, he technically wasn’t the best player in the country at his position. He is a very valuable piece of the Notre Dame defense for his leadership both on and off the field, and he may be the best overall defensive player in the country, he’s certainly racked up enough awards this season to claim that title, but what is the Heisman trophy about? Is it the best player in the country or is it the most liked and publicized player on the best team in the cou...

Manziel makes history with Heisman win

No one knows exactly what winning the Heisman Trophy requires. We do have an idea of what you can't do. You can't play just defense. Unless you're Archie Griffin, you can't win it twice. You can't be an offensive lineman. You couldn't win it as a freshman until Saturday night, when Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel snagged the award in a decisive...

Manziel breaks down Heisman wall

Johnny Manziel was understandably wide-eyed, but he certainly didn't look, or sound, like a freshman as he hugged his parents, said a few calming words to his tearful dad, John Paul, and coolly strolled to the stage to accept the Heisman Trophy on Saturday.

Expectations will be high for Manziel's encore

NEW YORK (AP) -- Heisman Trophy history suggests it will never get better for Johnny Manziel than it did this season. In the 78-year history of the Heisman, only one player has one more than one: Ohio State's Archie Griffin in 1974 and 75. But even if another Heisman is not in Johnny Football's his future, there's still plenty left for Johnny Football and Texas A&...
