Johnny Manziel became the first freshman in history to win the Heisman Trophy when he accomplished the feat in 2012. He enters the 2013 season with a chance to become only the second player in college football history to win two Heisman trophies, and he has the teammates surrounding him at Texas A&M to do exactly that.
In order to win the Heisman Trophy you need to put up great statistics while playing on a very good team. Manziel will put up tremendous numbers as long as Kevin Sumlin is the coach at A&M and 12 starters return from the Aggies 2012 squad that ended the season ranked No. 5 in the nation.
In addition to the 12 starters, the Ags return a multitude of players who contributed to their breakthrough season in 2012. Seven members of their 2012 recruiting class played immediately as freshmen and return for their sophomore season with a better idea of what it take to succeed in the Southeastern Conference.
The Ags are primed for a run at a SEC and national championship in 2012. If they are in contention for the BCS title in November, then Manziel will be in contention for his second consecutive Heisman Trophy.
This is a look at some of the players who can help Manziel win a second Heisman.
