COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel did almost everything right in Texas A&M's spring game on Saturday.
Well, everything except for giving the coaching staff a few new gray hairs by throwing his body into a block of safety Sam Moeller to help free Brandon Williams for a touchdown.
"I told Johnny, 'Don't ever do that again,'" offensive coordinator Clarence McKinney said. "His instincts came into effect. He wanted to go and block for the guy. But we're in the spring game; we don't need to lose him on a busted play. We don't want to see that."
Manziel threw for 303 yards and three touchdowns to lead the maroon team over the white team 43-23. Manziel looked sharp, completing 24 of 30 passes, with a long throw of 60 yards. He sat down after one series in the second half. Manziel and the first-team offense played against the second-team defense.
The Aggies are coming off an 11-2 record in their first season in the SEC after moving from the Big 12. Manziel led the Aggies to a win at national champion Alabama, and became the first freshman to win the award and A&M's first Heisman winner since 1957.
