Johnny Manziel says he will boycott Heisman Trophy ceremony in support of Reggie Bush

Mar 2, 2024

Johnny Manziel, winner of the 2012 Heisman Trophy, said on Saturday that until former USC star Reggie Bush gets his Heisman Trophy back from the NCAA, the former Texas A&M quarterback will be boycotting the annual ceremony.

"After careful thought and consideration I will be humbly removing myself from the Heisman trophy ceremony until @ReggieBush gets his trophy back," Manziel posted on X. "Doesn’t sit right with my morals and values that he can’t be on that stage with us every year. Reggie IS the Heisman trophy. Do the RIGHT thing @NCAA the ball is in your court."

Manziel voiced similar support for Bush in August in a post saying, "The only difference between my story and Reggie’s is that my 'illegal activities' did not start until after my Heisman season."
