"Johnny Football" Becomes First Freshman to Win Heisman
NEW YORK - There were three great finalists for the 78th Heisman Trophy presentation, but a freshman stood out above the rest.
Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel broke the freshman barrier, becoming the first in his class to win the Heisman award.
Manziel, nicknamed "Johnny Football", had a stellar freshman season for the Aggies in their first season of SEC play.
He became the first freshman and first SEC player in college football history to pass for over 3,000 yards and rush for over 1,000 yards in a single season.
Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o finished second in the Heisman voting, followed by Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein who finished third.
