Johnny Manziel named FWAA All-American

Handout

Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel was named to the FWAA All-American Team, one of a trio of Aggies to make it on the squad.

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was named an All-American by the Football Writers Association of America on Friday. The Heisman Trophy winner led the Aggies to a 10-2 season in their first season in the SEC, and scored 43 total touchdowns in 12 games.

Manziel was named to the Associated Press All-American First Team earlier this week, as well as the All-SEC First Team. Compounding the magnitude of Manziel's achievements is the fact that he's only a redshirt freshman.

Fellow Heisman finalist Manti Te'o of Notre Dame was also named to the team, as were Texas A&M offensive linemen Luke Joekel and Jake Matthews. The FWAA All-American team is decided by a panel of 12 FWAA members

Texas A&M will take on former Big 12 rivals Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl on Jan. 4 at 7 p.m. CT. The Aggies are 4.5 point favorites at most books, which is right where the line opened at.
