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.
