(WTVR) - The 2012 Heisman Trophy was awarded Saturday night to Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, aka "Johnny Football."

"I almost didn't believe it was real," said Manziel to USA Today.  "It's such a far-fetched dream."

Manziel became the first ever freshman to receive college football's most prestigious award.
