All of the attention for the 2013 Texas A&M football team is currently focused on quarterback Johnny Manziel and the apparent NCAA investigation for him profiting from autographs. College football fans and pundits are ignoring the fact that there are plenty of other Aggies responsible for Texas A&M's success on the field in 2013.
Manziel is a once-in-a-lifetime player. He became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy because he can impact the game like few others.
However, football is the ultimate team game. Manziel cannot win games all by himself. He would not be effective without the offensive line giving him time to get the ball off.
The Aggies' offense would not have set an Southeastern Conference record for total yardage in 2012 without the defense giving them the ball back.
There are plenty of aspects of a team that have to do with winning besides the quarterback. This is a look at the five players most responsible for the Aggies winning in 2013 other than Manziel.
