Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel won the 78th Heisman Trophy on Saturday night, becoming the first freshman player to win college football’s most prestigious award.

Manziel, 20, is the second Texas A&M player to win the Heisman and the first in 45 years. John David Crow won the award in 1957.  Manti Te’o, Notre Dame’s senior linebacker who won the Bednarik, Maxwell and Walter Camp National Player of the Year awards, finished second and Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein finished third.

Manziel, who became known as “Johnny Football”, passed for 3,419 yards and 24 touchdowns and also rushed for 1,181 yards and 19 more scores leading the Aggies to a 10-2 record this season, including a 29-24 defeat over then-No. 1 Alabama. His 4,600 yards of total offense broke the Southeastern Conference single-season record held by Cam Newton, who won the Heisman in 2010.
