Encore: national title?
Aggies look to keep up SEC momentum after Manziel makes them proud with Heisman.
NEW YORK — Heisman Trophy history suggests it will never get better for Johnny Manziel than it did this season. In the 78-year history of the Heisman, only one player has won more than one: Ohio State’s Archie Griffin in 1974 and ’75.
But even if another Heisman is not in Manziel’s future, there’s still plenty left for Johnny Football and Texas A&M to achieve before he’s done in College Station.
“First and foremost, there’s the Cotton Bowl,” Manziel said Saturday night. The 10thranked Aggies play No. 12 Oklahoma in Dallas on Jan. 4.
“From there, I have to be the guy who starts the motor for a run at the national title next year. That’s our goal. If more awards come, they come.”
That goal doesn’t seem farfetched at all after the Aggies’ scintillating first season playing in the Southeastern Conference. Manziel was joined on stage at his post-ceremony news conference by coach
