Former Heisman Winner Johnny Manziel Dead At 31

 The sad story of Johnny Football came to a tragic end Tuesday night when 31 year old Johnny Manziel died in a single vehicle accident near his Arizona home when his Truck left the road and struck a tree.

Manziel's name once evoked excitement, electric plays, and a swagger that redefined college football. He was Johnny Football, the Heisman Trophy winner, the Texas A&M legend who captured the nation's attention with his on-field magic and off-field antics. But Manziel's story is as much a cautionary tale as it is a sports saga. It's a story of immense talent squandered, potential unfulfilled, and the pitfalls of fame when left unchecked.

His fall was as meteoric as his rise.  The first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy's NFL career was brief and unspectacular, and his story has spiraled through nearly every professional football league, and his struggles with addiction and mental health issues was well documented.

Manziel will be remembered, but sadly as much as a cautionary tale as for his onfield accomplishments.
