QB Johnny Manziel happy to be 'normal'
By Sam Khan Jr.
Life as the first freshman Heisman Trophy winner has led to many things for Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.
Fame is certainly one of them. Whether it's hanging out on stage at a Wale concert or rubbing elbows with NBA stars, Manziel has certainly enjoyed the fringe benefits of the status that comes with being a Heisman winner.
Heisman-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel has had a hectic life since his extraordinary fall campaign.
It also has created a buzz about almost every detail in the life of the quarterback they call "Johnny Football," whether it's how he's spending his free time or what his class schedule looks like.
"Had my first round of tests last week, so I've been kind of pushing that off as much as possible doing my online stuff, and all three tests and three papers hit me in a week," Manziel said Monday. "It was good to feel like a normal student again, just a busy one."
Initially, Manziel was enrolled in a small English class of about 20-25 students, but it created a stir, so he changed his schedule.
"I didn't think anything of it, and it kind of turned into a little more of a big deal than I thought," Manziel said.
