Heisman Trophy front-runner Johnny Manziel has not been able to speak with the media this season because of a rule from Texas A&M Aggies head coach Kevin Sumlin prohibiting freshman from such interaction, but for the first time this season, Johnny Football has broken his silence.
Anticipation was building for Manziel’s first interaction with the media, but he didn’t give anyone much to work with.
“I don’t know if there’s anything I’ve been dying to say,” Manziel said.
There is a lot of hype surrounding Manziel and his Heisman campaign is in full swing. Despite possibly being the first freshman in college football history to win the Heisman Trophy, Johnny Football has been keeping a level head and is showing the focus of a seasoned veteran.
“Whatever is meant to be will happen,” Manziel said. “So I’m just doing whatever Coach Sumlin asks me to do in terms of lifting and getting ready for bowl practice and making sure our team stays focused and can hopefully take care of business in the bowl game.
“I think the Heisman and all the other awards like that will play itself out.”
Manziel is preparing to turn his attention to the team’s bowl game and will hope to hear his name called when this year’s Heisman winner is announced.
It has been a magical season for Johnny Football and the Aggies and he will look to continue his success next season as a sophomore.
