Johnny Manziel still hasn’t seen any regular season action during the first four games of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ Canadian Football League schedule. Manziel remains the Tiger-Cats’ backup behind former Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli. Ironically, Manziel gave his verbal commitment to the Ducks when Masoli was the school’s starting quarterback.
In two preseason exhibition games for the CFL club, Manziel completed 21-of-32 passes for 168 years and one touchdown.
As part of today’s Flashback Friday story, we are happy to replay the interview that Trish Hoffman and I did with Johnny on June 19, 2011 on the National High School Coaches Association‘s NHSCA Sports Hour, which was the precursor to the High School Football America Radio Show on the ArtistFirst Radio Network. HSFA has had a partnership with the NHSCA since 2010.
Manziel was the NHSCA’s National Senior Football Player of the Year and the interview with the Tivy High School (Kerrville, Texas) graduate was his first-ever on the national scene.
