Johnny Football Wins Coveted SEC Award

Heisman next?

Scoop: In what may be a precursor to the Heisman Trophy, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was named the Associated Press SEC Offensive Player of the Year Monday.

Significance: Johnny becomes the first freshman to win the SEC Offensive Player of the Year.

Story: Manziel re-wrote the record books by eclipsing Cam Newton's legendary 2010 Auburn season to become the all-time SEC total yards leader with 4,600 and the only freshman in FBS history to finish a season with 3,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards.
