COLLEGE STATION- It was the talk on Twitter Monday night. An autographed Johnny Manziel helmet that was sold at the Brazos County A&M Club Coach's Night for $15,500. The annual fundraiser raises scholarship money for students looking to attend Texas A&M University.
We're less than a month away from Texas A&M kicking off their football season at South Carolina, the very first game ever on the new SEC Network. Coach Sumlin talked about his responsibility as a head coach to lead this football team to SEC championship and what this team needs to do to be better. Now, that the team is without Manziel, Sumlin believes the team will have a great season. "We continue to try and get better and where we are not doing very well, we continue to do that whether that is offense, defense, special teams, team discipline, recruiting, whatever that is and we have struggled in some areas, and we've looked into that and we have made some adjustments," Sumlin says.
Similar autographed helmets from Johnny Manziel were auctioned off at each of the Coach's night that took place in Fort Worth, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. The helmet at the Brazos County event sold for more than the other helmets auctioned. The Brazos County A&M Club will get an extra two thousand dollars to give to students for scholarships.
