PLAYERS: Johnny Manziel
TEAMS:

Via Larry Brown Sports:

There might not be a collegiate athlete in the country who enjoys his celebrity status more than Johnny Manziel. The Heisman Trophy winner has been living it up the past several months. A day after lighting up Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl, he hit up an Oklahoma casino and showed off his wealth.

Manziel shared a photo on his Instagram account Saturday of himself and two others at WinStar World Casino. He was seen fanning a stack of bills, and he captioned the photo, “Casino ballin!”

It didn’t take long for WinStar to realize they had the best college football player in the country in the house, and they welcomed him via Twitter:

Of course, any time a photo of a college football player with cash in hand emerges, questions of potential NCAA violations follow. The 20-year-old redshirt freshman quarterback addressed those issues as well as questions about whether he old enough to be gambling:

The best part of all is that Manziel received some empathy from a fellow teen superstar athlete, Bryce Harper:

Let’s just recap all the awesomeness in which Manziel has indulged the past few months:

It must be good to be Johnny Football.

  • People are not hating on Johnny they looking out for him because when you are on scholarship their are certain rules you have to follow. Oh he exempt because he won the heisman, Not. If that was any other kid posing at a casino the would be investigated by the NCAA. With him posing with pro athletes and so on I think he should be treated like any ordinary joe or college kid under a scholarship. If not whyt not let all the student athlete go to the casinos. Trust me this fame is only short lived cause he is being reckless
