Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was named the 2013 Roy F. Kramer SEC Male Athlete of the Year on Tuesday.

In the 38-year history of the award, Manziel becomes the tenth football player to take top honors, and the first since Mark Ingram, back in 2010.

The isn’t the first award for the Manziel, who needs an upgraded trophy room, after only one season of playing college football. He became the first freshman in college football history to win the Heisman Trophy, while also winning the Davey O’Brien Award, the Manning Award, and being tabbed first-team All-SEC, SEC Offensive Player of the Year, SEC Freshman of the Year, Associated Press first-team All-American, first-team All-America by the Football Writers Association of America, the Sporting News Player of the Year, and the AP Player of the Year.

Manziel guided the Aggies to an 11-2 record last season, while becoming the fifth player ever, to have 3,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a season. He finished last season with 5,116 total yards, a new SEC record.

Manziel and the Aggies begin their 2013 season on Saturday, August 31, when they play host to the Rice Owls.
