Johnny Manziel comes away from bowl victory impressed with Duke football

ATLANTA—Duke quarterback Anthony Boone did not come away with the victory in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, but he did gain a new fan—2012 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.

After notching a comeback victory against Duke in what will likely be the final game of his career at Texas A&M, Manziel did not beat around the bush when addressing the team it took all of his willpower to defeat.

"I think that team plays with more heart than anybody in the entire country," Manziel said. "Those guys they have on their team, they play for Coach Cutcliffe, play for their coaches and their fans and their university harder than anybody in the country. It was unreal to see how much fire, how much passion, how much energy they brought into that game. It’s a real credit to them how they played today. It was pretty darn good."

Manziel echoed those same sentiments on Twitter again Wednesday morning and reached out to Boone, who accounted for four touchdowns in the Chick-fil-A Bowl but also threw two costly interceptions in the fourth quarter.
