Johnny Manziel voted for Jameis Winston to win Heisman


Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has received his fair share of criticism for perceived immaturity and his care free attitude, but he showed some maturity and responsibility when it came to his Heisman vote.

While many players would be tempted to vote for themselves, Manziel took an honest look at the season and cast his vote for the eventual winner, Florida State’s Jameis Winston.

Not only did Manziel vote for Winston ahead of him, but he voted for Boston College running back Andre Williams at No. 2. Manziel came in at No. 3 on his own ballot.

Winston was certainly the most deserving player for the most prestigious award in college football, so it was great to see him get his moment on the big stage. Now, he will turn his attention towards beating Auburn in the national title game.

For Manziel, he will begin heavily weighing his decision on whether or not to declare for the NFL Draft. One thing is for sure, however, and that is that he has grown as the season progressed and he proved that tonight.

    I dont think he proved he grew at all, he voted himself 3rd. he should of put mccaron above himself as well. he Only did what he did, so that people would say things like you did, and help his draft stock.

      I think Manziel got it exactly right, McCarron and mason deserved to be placed under Manziel… McCarron definitely did not have a Heisman caliber season, he shouldn’t have even been invited! GO NOLES!

      • Kyle Findley

        I agree with most of that statement. However, if you put Manziel’s first 10 games against his season last year, the numbers are as good and, in some places, better. Manziel had a fantastic year, but those last two games just bumped him down the list for me. If I had a vote, it’d have been:

        1. Jameis Winston
        2. Andre Williams
        3. Jordan Lynch (who many seemed to overlook)
        4. Johnny Manziel
        5. Tre Mason
        6. A.J. McCarron

          ye he had nice rush yards and TDS Lynch, but really he didnt play any good teams at all.

      You know Yeldon Or Amari Cooper are just as good as AJ on the Alabama team its not like he is the best player on that team.. Sure they have the best winning record but its not just becourse of AJ, they have the best coach and best overall team players and recruits
