The Johnny Football era is over at Texas A&M.
Sophomore quarterback Kenny Hill threw for 511 yards and three touchdowns Thursday night, leading the Aggies to a dominant 52-28 season-opening win against the South Carolina Gamecocks.
After the game, Johnny Manziel tweeted to congratulate Hill, bestowing upon him the nickname "Kenny Football."
KENNY FOOTBALL!!! #GigEm— Johnny Manziel (@JManziel2) August 29, 2014
While the tweet was obviously meant to congratulate Hill, Gabe Bock from TexAgs radio tweeted that the new Aggies quarterback isn't a fan of the "Football" nickname.
Hill: I don't really like "Kenny Football." [crowd burst in laughter]— Gabe Bock (@GabeBock) August 29, 2014
If he keeps playing like he did against the Gamecocks, he'll earn a new nickname soon enough—hopefully one that he actually likes.
