Heisman winner Johnny Manziel shoves grad assistant after interception
Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has been all over the news lately for living the life of a Heisman Trophy winning player. Now, he is getting back to football and things have gotten off to a rocky start.
According to the Houston Chronicle, Manziel threw three interceptions during a scrimmage in front of 2,000 fans last Saturday and he wasn’t at all happy about it when he got to the sidelines where he met up with a happy graduate assistant. That’s when things got heated.
“Following his last of three interceptions, on a short pass into the end zone as he ran into the right sidelines, an exuberant graduate assistant jumped up and down within what appeared to be inches of an irate Manziel. So Manziel shoved him. Players and coaches, who were all gathered along the sidelines, quickly separated the giddy GA and Manziel before anything escalated.”
The next time Manziel takes the field it will be front of ESPN cameras on April 13 for the team’s annual Maroon & White Game.
