Found September 08, 2013 on College Spun:
Texas A&M’s star quarterback Johnny Manziel gets bashed and criticized by the national media seemingly on a daily basis. It’s about time the world gets to see a positive story involving the star Aggie. During warm-ups of the team’s matchup against Sam Houston State, a young Johnny Football fan was watching from the sidelines, yelling Johnny’s name. What happens once Manziel notices him is really something you’ll have to see for yourself. Take a look:  Yep – Manziel went out of his way to make that little Aggies fans’ day by giving him a high five and a pat on the head — the kid’s reaction at the end is priceless. [Good Bull Hunting]

Texas A&M: Students to face penalties for selling Alabama tickets

NFL GMs are reportedly paying close attention to how Kevin Sumlin is handling Johnny Manziel

There are some that think that once Johnny Manziel bolts College Station for the NFL, Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin will follow him out the door. Not because Sumlin doesn’t want to coach an Aggie team without Manziel, but because many think he’s a surefire NFL coach. While it’s been well documented that NFL GMs aren’t really too keen on Manziel’s antics, there hasn...

Brutally Honest Preview: #1 Alabama vs #6 Texas A&M Manziel Manziel Manziel

This is how Johnny Manziel will be judged. Unless he leads the #6 Texas A&M Aggies to the SEC Title game, and later a BCS berth, this is the standard. Manziel obviously did it last year, he was the only QB1 to beat the #1 Alabama Crimson Tide; even as the Tide went on to win it all yet again. Saturday is what all the Johnny Manziel hype is all about. He’s the biggest college...
