Looks like Johnny Football

Hugh Freeze thought he’d seen the last of Johnny Football, but he says TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin looks like Manziel, the former Texas A&M star.

Boykin leads the Big 12 in passing yards per game with 309.5 and touchdown passes with 30. He’s third in efficiency at 146.6 and adds 53.5 rushing yards a game with eight rushing touchdowns.

“Boykin, they’ve got great players around him, but he’s a different animal,” Freeze said.

“He reminds me of Johnny Manziel when we had to play and defend him. He’s very similar to that.”
