Jonathan Paul Manziel, also known as Johnny Football and Johnny F*cking Football (JFF), is the current Heisman Trophy winner and quarterback for the Texas A&M Aggies. Johnny was a red-shirt freshman during A&M’s first season in the SEC (2012). He set many NCAA records by passing for over 3,000 yards and rushing for over 1,000. He helped lead the Aggies to an 11-2 first season in the SEC and the Aggies highest final season ranking in decades.
Johnny is likely the only 3-star recruit to every have his nickname become a registered trademark. Growing up, Johnny killed it in high-school at Tivy in Kerrville, Texas (too many stats to include) and wanted to be a Texas Longhorn, but good ole Mack Brown wanted to make him a defensive back, lolz, so he committed to Oregon, but was persuaded to change his commitment to the Aggies by some would say, an act of God.
In 2012, Johnny won the starting job by playing well in practices. He got his first start against Florida which ended up being a close loss (17-20). A few games later he had 557 yards of total offense, breaking a 43-year-old record. Two games later, he broke that record with 576 yards of total offense. By this time the Texas A&M faithful could see what was happening in College Station and started preaching to their friends that the truth had arrived in the form of a scrappy 3-star recruit named Johnny Manziel. Skepticism soon turned to belief when he lead the Aggies to a 29-24 victory over the #1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide, doing it in Tuscaloosa no less. The Aggies and JFF went on to finish the season 11-2, smashing Oklahoma 41-13 in the Cotton Bowl.
