Now a coach with the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Ricky Williams is long past his days as a college football superstar. He has learned from the explosion of media attention that came with his 1998 Heisman Trophy and his mistakes dealing with all of it.
As a result, Williams’ opinion regarding the entire offseason enjoyed/despised by Texas A&M quarterback and reigning Heisman winner Johnny Manziel holds a little extra weight.
The former Texas Longhorns superstar has not been impressed. Not with Manziel, whom he believes should have known better, nor with the sports media.
“You know once you win the Heisman Trophy, there’s going to be more attention on you,” the former University of Texas star said to KEYE TV. “You are probably not going to be able to get away with all the stuff you got away with before. To the media I would say, if the media did their research on who this kid was, nobody would be surprised.”
