Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel is having one of the best seasons ever.

Not only was he the first freshman awarded the Heisman Trophy and a first-team All-American member, Manziel was named the Associated Press Player of the Year on Tuesday. Manziel collected 31 of the first-place votes and became the first freshman to win the award.

Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o received 15 votes.

It’s hard to imagine having a better year than Manziel is having. Not only did he receive all of the postseason accolades, he got to meet Megan Fox on the late night talk show circuit.

It’s tough being Johnny Football.
