Johnny Manziel couldn't resist a comedic callback when he recently took a photo with a little kid who was a big fan of Johnny Football. 

Yahoo! Sports spotted a wonderful tweet of the Texas A&M freshman quarterback who dominated in his first foray into college football. 

First, the Heisman winner posted this picture of himself and a wad of cash after getting lucky at an Oklahoma casino in early January. 

Obviously, Manziel received a great deal of vitriol over the picture, so he took it down, but he has since done the same thing in a recent picture with a young cancer patient he was visiting. 

Here is a tweet of Manziel with a little fan, both of whom are ready to throw some fake money swag in our faces.

Great visit to the hospital today in Connecticut made a ton of new friends. Hopefully this picture passes compliance..…

Not to worry, Johnny Football fan, because it seems this photo is indeed compliant.

@aggie_hood @jmanziel2 Great photo and good bull. Absolutely compliant, Johnny.

There was no mention in the report as to the name of the little fan, only listed as a "young cancer patient."

That's hardly of any import, because the fan looks absolutely thrilled to be flaunting some play money for cameras with his athletic hero Johnny Football. 

The freshman managed one more great feat as he packed a great deal of humor, as well as goodwill, into one tremendous picture.
