Johnny Manziel Kicked Out of Manning Passing Camp
Posted on July 14, 2013 by Phillip
Johnny Manziel is one of the players I most look forward to watching this upcoming season. He has spent much time in the news this off-season for everything BUT football, so I’m intrigued as to whether or not he’ll be able to pick up where he left off last season.
The interesting thing about this story, is the fact that when football was finally involved Manziel still can’t stay out of the news. There has been speculation on why he got kicked out, but we do know that he was forced to leave the Manning Passing Camp.
Our boots on the ground in Thibodaux, La. — believe it or not, we have them — informed us that Johnny Manziel was sent home from the Manning Passing Academy on Saturday afternoon by Archie Manning himself. Our source, who wishes to remain anonymous because of his connection to the camp, gave us the scoop after Manziel showed up tardy Saturday afternoon after being out on the town Friday night. The Texas A&M star reportedly enjoyed himself a little too much Friday night and rolled back into the camp at Nicholls State University some time around noon Saturday before getting the boot.
Manziel was supposed to participate in the “Air It Out” competition along with other top collegiate passers Saturday evening. He didn’t. Camp officials told local media that Manziel “is sick” and was no longer at the camp. But our source claims he was kicked out at the behest of Manning paterfamilias Archie.
Winning always has, and always will cure all.
If Manziel comes out and has another great season with the Aggies, most of this will be forgotten. But if he struggles, expect the critics to have much to say regarding the Heisman winner.
