ORLANDO, FL -- Word travels fast when "Johnny Football" is on the move these days. Even before his plane landed in Orlando, Florida, there were autograph seekers pausing during their Wednesday travels to get a glimpse of the Heisman Trophy Finalist that they had either heard was on the plane, or who actually flew from Houston with them today.

Manziel's teammate offensive tackle Luke Joeckel who is an Outland Trophy finalist led the way out the jet-way like he has done all year long making blocks.

"I told him I'd be his body guard this week," said Joeckel. This is quite an experience. I know it's going to be fun for both of us and glad to be in Orlando."

When ask about Luke being along on this trip, Manziel said,

"I love having him here now." added Johnny.

Luke and Johnny got a chance to relax this afternoon at their hotel. This evening they have a media availability at the Disney Boardwalk Hotel Convention Center. News 3's Cody Coil will have that story tonight at 10 on KBTX.
