Manziel is first freshman to win Heisman Trophy

NEW YORK (AP) -- He's Johnny Best in Football now - and a freshman, at that.

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel became the first newcomer to win the Heisman Trophy, taking college football's top individual prize Saturday night after a record-breaking debut.

Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o finished a distant second in the voting and Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein was third. In a Heisman race with two nontraditional candidates, Manziel broke through the class ceiling and kept Te'o from becoming the first purely defensive player to win the award.

''That barrier's broken now,'' Manziel said. ''It's starting to become more of a trend that freshmen are coming in early and that they are ready to play. And they are really just taking the world by storm.''

None more than the guy they call Johnny Football.

He's got 3 more seasons to prove his worth after this award. It can be done, Archie Griffin did it at Ohio State, winning the Heisman consecutive years. A&M's top priority is to maintain a formidable offensive line to keep Manziel off his back. But he did have an outstanding year, no doubt about that.

Silly me......I never gave thought that collegiate football players could declare for free agency into the pros. What the hell did I drink...... and could I please have some more.
