Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel wins the Heisman Memorial Trophy on December 8, 2012.

K-State senior quarterback Collin Klein was one of three finalists for the Heisman Memorial Trophy. I photographed him as he traveled to Manhattan, New York with hopes of winning college football’s most prestigious award against Texas A&M freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel and Notre Dame senior linebacker Manti Te’o at the Best Buy Theater on December 8, 2012.

The Heisman Memorial trophy is presented by the Heisman Trust to “the most outstanding college football player whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence with integrity”, usually a running back or a quarterback. The Heisman was first awarded on December 9, 1935 to the University of Chicago’s Jay Berwanger. It is the oldest of the several college football awards.

Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel became the first player to win the Heisman as a freshman.
