New York, NY (Sports Network) - Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy on Saturday.
The redshirt frosh broke the SEC record for total offense by passing for 3,419 yards and rushing for 1,181 more while totaling 43 touchdowns -- 24 through the air.
In Texas A&M's first season in the vaunted SEC, Manziel led the Aggies to a trip to the Cotton Bowl behind a 10-2 record, which included a win over then- No. 1 Alabama on Nov. 10.
He also became the first Texas A&M player to win the Heisman since John David Crow back in 1957.
