Each week this season, GigEmNation ranks Texas A&M's top 10 performers of the season. Here's a look at who shined throughout the entire regular season after the Aggies closed out their inaugural SEC campaign with a 59-29 win over Missouri on Saturday at Kyle Field:

1. QB Johnny Manziel The redshirt freshman quarterback broke several records this year, most notably the SEC single-season total yards mark previously held by Auburn quarterback Cam Newton. Manziel finished the year with 4,600 total offensive yards (3,419 passing, 1,181 rushing) and 43 total touchdowns (24 passing, 19 rushing).
