Update: Johnny Manziel doesn’t care that Kenny Hill wants a different nickname.

Earlier: Kenny Hill might have reminded Texas A&M fans of Johnny Manziel Thursday night, as the redshirt sophomore tore up a South Carolina defense on way to a blowout 52-28 victory against the Gamecocks in Columbia.
The Aggies’ quarterback deserves a nickname not evoked from his former teammate, though.
Hill: I don’t really like “Kenny Football.” [crowd burst in laughter]

Hill, who threw for 511 yards and three touchdowns against the Gamecocks, broke Manziel’s Texas A&M record for most passing yards in a single game. He completed 44 of his 60 passing attempts.
Texas A&M next faces Lamar on Sept. 6. In the meantime, Aggies’ fans, come up with a better nickname for your quarterback.
