Letter: Cheers to the Manziel parents
Updated: January 07, 2013 - 11:52 am

Congratulations and kudos to Kerrville’s Tivy and Texas A&M’s star athlete, Johnny “Heisman” Manziel. His athletic accomplishments are phenomenal. Many of us were apprehensive that being a freshman would stand in the way of winning the Heisman Trophy, when it should have been very much in his favor. For a young man to accomplish so much by the time he is barely 20 years old speaks volumes about his hard work, athletic ability and personal effort.
