Manziel mania takes on new forms, reaches fever pitch

November 30, 2012

Manziel mania has quite literally gone to the heads of Texas A&M football fans.

A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, who is likely to become the Aggies’ first Heisman Trophy recipient since John David Crow in 1957, has inspired fans to wear costumes, ask him for dates, sing tributes and even display his portrait … on their heads.

Christian Chavez, 18, a senior at Hill Country High School in Manziel’s hometown of Kerrville, agreed to have Manziel’s image shaved into his head.

The haircut, which included the Texas A&M logo and Manziel’s nickname ‘Johnny Football,’ resulted in Chavez being put in a special class at school.
