Manziel’s competitive fire burns even in spring drills
Posted on 03/23/2013 by Brent Zwerneman
COLLEGE STATION — Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, had both an exceptional and occasionally rugged scrimmage on Saturday at Kyle Field — but one play in particular left no doubt Manziel’s competitive fire burns even during spring drills.
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.
Meanwhile the star of the day was last year’s leading receiver, Mike Evans, who time and again looked like a man among boys in collecting more than 200 receiving yards (thanks to intrepid TexAgs statistician Gabe Bock) and two touchdowns on the afternoon.
The Aggies scrimmaged before about 2,000 fans, and will next be in front of the faithful on April 5 starting 8 p.m. during the second annual “Friday Night Lights.” The annual Maroon & White game starts 2 p.m. on April 13, and also will be broadcast live by ESPN.
Coaches and players weren’t available for post-scrimmage interviews Saturday because of the Aggie Youth Experience that immediately followed involving the players.
