COLLEGE STATION, Texas - In his Hill Country hometown of Kerrville, Texas, Johnny Football never would have been known by such a specific nickname.

Mark Smith, the high school coach of Johnny Manziel, says he could have been Johnny Baseball or Johnny Golf - "he could have been anything he wanted to be."

Well, at the moment, Texas A&M's quarterback is one of the top players in college football coming off a road upset of national champion Alabama.

The freshman has led No. 9 A&M to an 8-2 record by passing for 2,780 yards and 18 touchdowns and running for 1,014 yards and 15 more scores. He's the second freshman in Bowl Subdivision history with 1,000 yards rushing and 2,000 passing in a season, and he's got that even before Saturday's game against Sam Houston State.
