If you are a Houstonian and you have driven anywhere in the past 3 months then you have undoubtedly seen the “Keep Johnny Football in Texas” billboards around town. Clearly the Aggies are behind all the billboards, but some of you might be asking yourself “who is Johnny Football and why are we trying to keep Johnny Manziel in Texas?” Don’t feel bad, if it wasn’t for my Facebook Aggie friends who I almost deleted from my news feed this past football season, I wouldn’t know who he was either.
The Only Stats You Need To Know:
Jonathan Paul Manziel aka”Johnny Football”aka “Johnny F**king Football”
[li]Played for Texas A&M from 2011-2013 when he announced that he would be going into the 2014 NFL draft[/li]
[li]Given the name “Johnny Football/Johnny F**king Football” by fans & students…and it is trademarked (eye roll)[/li][/list]
[list style=”check”][li]2012 was the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy[/li]
[li]Projected to be a 1st round pick in the 2014 NFL draft[/li]
Johnny Manziel – BAD BOY (which is kind of hot)
[li]2012 Arrested for disorderly conduct and presenting a fake ID (after his friend made a racial slur to a man on the street Johnny Manziel got between his friend and the angry man on the street…which led to a fight…cue bicycle cop in which J-Football presents bike cop with a fake I.D. You know, that old story)[/li][/list]
[list style=”check”][li]2013- Signed autographs for money (allegedly) which is a big NCAA no-no; had to sit out the 1st half of the 1st game of the season[/li]

[li]Johnny Manziel’s parents told ESPN magazine that they have “concerns about his dealings with his newfound stardom” (DUH!)[/li]
I don’t know if he will get drafted to the Texans, and frankly I don’t care but I do find that Johnny Manziel sort of looks like my boo James Franco.
