 LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Two of the nation's most celebrated players this season say the attention they've received recently is nothing they could have imagined.
Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein addressed the media on Wednesday, a night before both will vie for top honors during the College Football Awards Show on Thursday night at Florida's Disney World.
Manziel and Klein, along with Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o, were selected finalists this week for the Heisman Trophy presentation Saturday. They are also finalists for the Maxwell Award, given Thursday to the nation's best all-around college player.
The Maxwell Award has been a predictor of Heisman winners in recent years, with Maxwell recipients Cam Newton in 2010 and Tim Tebow in 2007 going on to win the Heisman.
