Johnny Manziel

Former NFL quarterback Johnny “Johnny Football” Manziel was born on December 6, 1992. The Kerrville, Texas native won the 2012 Heisman Trophy, 2013 SEC Male Athlete of the Year, and was a two-time All-SEC first-team selection during his time at Texas A&M. Manziel was drafted by the Cleveland Browns as the 22nd overall pick in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, but was cut after two seasons after exhibiting poor behavior off the field. He was also drafted by the San Diego Padres in the 28th round of the 2014 MLB Draft. He may play in Canadian Football League (CFL) for the 2018 season. Manziel announced his engagement to Bre Tiesi in March 2017. She is a model who appeared on MTV’s "Wild'n Out.”


Manziel spent more than two months in rehab in 2015. His father, Paul Manziel, has publicly expressed concern about his son’s sobriety. In November 2017, a 2016 misdemeanor domestic violence charge was dismissed. He was accused of hitting and threatening ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley in January 2016 in Dallas. Under terms of the agreement, Manziel was required to complete an anger management class, attend a domestic violence impact panel and partake in the NFL's substance abuse program or a similar program.
