Manziel picked No.2

for All-SEC team

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Southeastern Conference coaches have picked Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel as the second-team All-SEC quarterback, behind Georgia’s Aaron Murray.

The coaches rated the Texas A&M quarterback as the preseason second-team selection on the teams released by the league on Thursday. Alabama’s A.J. McCarron received third-team honors.

Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman last season, but allegations that he received payment for autographs threaten his eligibility.
