Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner, joined Florida State’s Jameis Winston and Alabama’s AJ McCarron as the three finalists for the 2013 Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award.

The finalists, announced Monday, will attend the live announcement of the winner during The Home Depot College Football Awards show, Dec. 12 in Orlando, Fla.

The recipient will be honored Feb. 17, 2014 during a dinner at the Fort Worth Club.

Manziel, the 2012 O’Brien winner, will be one of four A&M finalists for individual honors during ESPN’s Dec. 12 telecast.

Also in the mix will be wide receiver Mike Evans (Biletnikoff Award), offensive tackle Jake Matthews (Outland Trophy) and punter Drew Kaser (Ray Guy Award). A&M has the most individual finalists of any FBS school.

Baylor offensive guard Cyril Richardson, a North Crowley graduate, joins Matthews among the Outland finalists. Texas kicker Anthony Fera is a finalist for the Lou Groza Award and Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert is a finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award, given to the top defensive back.

The same three finalists for the O’Brien Award (Manziel, Winston, McCarron) also are finalists for the 2013 Maxwell Award, given to the nation’s top overall player.
