(NEW YORK) — Johnny “Football” speaks. For the first time in the 2012 season, Heisman Trophy candidate Johnny Manziel spoke to the media about his stellar season.
The Texas A&M redshirt freshman quarterback was unable to speak with the media all season long due to head coach Kevin Sumlin’s freshmen policy.
“This season has been incredibly surreal and beyond my wildest imagination,” Manziel said on Monday.
Manziel has thrown for 3,419 yards, rushed for 1,181 yards, and has been accounted for a total of 42 touchdowns.
“It’s something you dream about, sitting there creating all these video games when you’re a kid and putting up crazy numbers,” Manziel said on being up for the Heisman Trophy. “It’s something you can only sit back and dream about. It’s the biggest award in college football.”
The Heisman Trophy ceremony is Saturday Dec. 8.
