Heisman hopeful QB Manziel happy to talk

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - The legend of Johnny Football has grown all season while Johnny Manziel piled up yards and the Texas A&M Aggies piled up wins.
On Monday, the freshman quarterback finally weighed in on his catchy nickname. Speaking to the media for the first time all season Manziel says of the moniker: ``I find it extremely funny.''
No one's laughing about the success of Manziel and the Aggies. His 4,600 yards of total offense have helped No. 10 A&M to its first 10-win season since 1998, and has him among the top contenders for the Heisman Trophy.
Manziel says he respected coach Kevin Sumlin's decision for him not to speak to the media because he's a freshman. But says he's happy to finally: ``let you guys know how I am.''
