A selection for the Football Writer’s Association of America All-American team, Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel has now done what only three* other players have done before: be selected for two FWAA All-American teams.

The FWAA released its Freshman All-American team Monday with the redshirt freshman leading the team.  Manziel has also been selected as an Associated Press All-American.

The SEC and Big Ten lead the group with four selections each while the Pac-12, ACC and Mountain West each have three. Fourteen of the selections are true freshman.

First-year Ohio State coach Urban Meyer was selected as the FWAA coach of the year for the team.

(*Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson, Texas Tech wide receiver Michael Crabtree and Missouri wide receiver/return specialist Jeremy Maclin have also been selected to both teams)
