Johnny Manziel has rejuvenated the Texas A&M football with a stellar freshman campaign this season, and even first year head coach Kevin Sumlin is quite surprised. Sumlin didn't even make a decision on his starting quarterback until August, when he finally chose the freshman out of Tyler, Texas. Ever since then, Manziel has quite literally been on fire every weekend at the helm. He has slowly but surely garnered a strong backing of Heisman support as the season is almost to a close, and is having a historically remarkable season considering the opposition he has been facing, albeit as a freshman.
1.) Freshman Firsts
Manziel has confused opponents every week with his feet or through the air. He will finish the season as the first SEC player, first freshman and fifth NCAA FBS player to pass for 3,000 yards and run for 1,000. Last Saturday against Sam Houston State he racked up his eighth straight 300-yard game, and permanently put himself in the Texas A&M record books for most offensive yards in a season (4,161).
