Johnny Football made history in 2012 when he became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy. The dual-threat QB was the fifth player in NCAA history to have 1,000 rushing yards and 3,000 passing yards in a season. He was also the first to reach 300 yards passing and 100 yards rushing in a game three times. Manziel will have to raise the bar even higher to repeat as the Heisman winner.
