A&M’s Manziel Talks “Johnny Football” Nickname, Heisman Race

In his first teleconference of the season, Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel fielded 64 questions in a little less than an hour.  His fast answers and good-natured demeanor were just as much a hit with the media as his playing ability has been in the SEC spotlight.  And that’s pretty big.

“I’m this small-town kid, and I still see myself that way,” he said.  “I don’t see myself as ‘Johnny Football.’  I see myself as Johnathan Manziel, a small-town guy from Kerrville (Texas)…

“The thing that’s caught me off guard is going to dinner and somebody saying, ‘Hey, can we get your autograph?’ or ‘Do you mind if you take a picture with my son?’  I guess I haven’t really grasped the whole entirety of it yet.”

Asked about the Heisman Trophy race, Manziel admitted that it’s “something you dream about as a kid.”  “When you’re sitting there playing all these NCAA games as a kid and you create a player and you win the Heisman as a freshman because you just put up crazy numbers, it’s something you can only sit back and dream about… This season has been incredibly, incredibly surreal.  It’s beyond my wildest imagination.”

And that now famous moniker, “Johnny Football?”

Someone hung it on him during his redshirt season a year ago.  Manziel said it’s “funny and it fits.”

When you play like this, yes, it does (and as a college football fan, I’d encourage you to watch both of these highlight packages):
