Johnny Manziel has become an overnight sensation, not only to fans of Texas A&M, but to everyone who watches football. It took Johnny Manziel, nicknamed “Johnny Football,” only three months to rise to the top of the football world. He, along with the help of his teammates, has pulled off some wins that no one ever thought could happen.

Take for example the Alabama game. Alabama was the No. 1-ranked team in the nation, was undefeated, and to top it off, the game was on Alabama’s home turf. All odds were against the Aggies. However, when Johnny Football stepped on that field, everything changed. He led the Aggies to a miraculous win over Alabama and knocked them out of their No. 1 spot, destroying that perfect record of theirs.

It was the Alabama game that really put “Johnny Football” in the media spotlight. His highlight film was played over and over. It was that game that really sealed his spot in the race for the Heisman Trophy. If Manziel wins, he will be the first freshman ever to win the prestigious and sought-after award.

Overall, the “Johnny Football” fever that has mesmerized everyone in the past few months will live on forever, with or without a Heisman Trophy win.
