The 2012 Heisman Award is Johnny Manziel, who is the starting quarterback for Texas A&M. He is the only Freshman to win this award. This award goes the best individual player in College Football. He had an unbelievable season with record breaking stats.  He had over 3,400 yards, 24 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. Johnny even got the nickname “Johnny Football” after the win against Alabama who was ranked number 1 in the polls. After the win against Alabama, Johnny quickly became one of the contenders for the Heisman race.  This is Texas A&M’s second time in history to have a Heisman winner. The first was John David Crow, a Half Back who won in 1957.  Johnny Manziel was one of the three Heisman finalists, the other two were Manti Te’o, a linebacker from Notre Dame and Colin Klein, a Quarterback for Kansas State.

“I think Johnny Manziel will be a threat to win the Heisman again the next couple years and he proved that freshman can win the Heisman Award”, said Adam Dodson, a senior.

“Johnny stood out the most out of all the finalist. He also had the best stats and set new records. I think he had the ability to carry his team the next couple years”, said Trey Sherrod, a sophomore.
