Johnny Manziel, a Texas A&M redshirt freshman quarterback, took time to do an interview with The Capital Sports Report in the Heisman press conference.
TCSR: Your head coach Kevin Sumlin would not let you talk to the media until after Thanksgiving. What did you think when you first heard you would be invited to New York?
JM: “I was able to watch film and get school work done. When I wasn’t talking to the media, I didn’t have to worry the distractions. My team has done a great job with it.”
TCSR: Could you talk about your respect for your other finalists?
JM: “Once I knew I was going to go, I talked to my roommate. I have huge respect for them. They’re great football players.”
TCSR: You have 25 family members here with you. Could you talk about having family here?
JM: “Last night, my family and I was able to get on a tour bus and tour the city. It has been a couple of years since I was here. Earlier today, I got to experience what its like walking around the city. I have 25 members of my family here.”
TCSR: If your name is called tonight, what would your reaction be?
JM: “I have dreamt about this for a long time. I thank God for giving me this opportunity to play this great game of football. There have been so many that have helped make this possible. They all shaped who I am today.”TCSR: Will you be nervous tonight?
JM: “No, I am just having fun. It is an honor for me to be here. I am humble to be said in the same breathe with these guys.”
