  • Manziel is first freshman...


    NEW YORK (AP) — Johnny Football just got himself a way cooler nickname: Johnny Heisman.

    Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy, taking college football's top individual prize Saturday night after a record-breaking debut.

    Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o finished a distant second and Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein was third in the voting. In a unique Heisman race, with two nontraditional candidates, Manziel broke through the class barrier and kept Te'o from becoming the first purely defensive player to win the award.

    Manziel drew 474 first-place votes and 2,029 points from the panel of media members and former winners.

    "I have been dreaming about this since I was a kid," he said during his acceptance speech after hugging his mom, dad and kid sister.

  • Rockets, Tigers meet in 4A final

    The Goddard Rockets and the Los Lunas Tigers square off for the state Class 4A football championship tonight.
    Goddard, the No. 1 seed and Los Lunas, the No. 2 seed, will play at Los Lunas. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. All Class 2-5 state championship games, which will be played this weekend, can be streamed live at nmaafilms.tv.
    The Rockets (11-0) and the Tigers (12-0) were the only two undefeated 4A teams in the 2012 regular season. The Tigers scored a whopping 550 points this season (45.8 points per game) and allowed only 86 points, including shutting out five opponents.
    In fact, this season, the only team that scored more than 8 points against Los Lunas was Aztec, which the Tigers defeated 24-20 in last week’s 4A semifinal round.
    Goddard, meanwhile defeated Moriarty and Belen in the playoffs by a combined score of 69-14 to reach the championship game for the fifth time in the past seven years. Goddard won back-to-back titles in 2008 and 2009 and finished as the runner-up behind Aztec, losing a nail-biting finale 28-27 last year.
    Los Lunas has never won a state football title.

  • 'Toppers pick up win at...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team picked up an important win Thursday night.
    Los Alamos held the Albuquerque Academy Chargers to just one point in the first quarter and just five points in the fourth quarter to earn a big road victory, 41-30.
    Academy (0-3) rallied to cut the Hilltopper lead down to 17-14 at the break but the Hilltoppers scored 13 points in the third quarter and 11 points in the fourth quarter to seal the win.
    It was the first win by the Hilltoppers over a Class 4A team. The Hilltoppers (2-1) will face another Class 4A team Saturday night at home when they play the Moriarty Pintos (0-3). Moriarty is averaging only 21.3 points per game this season and was held to 13 points Tuesday against Hope Christian and 20 points Thursday against Belen.
    No other information about Thursday’s game was available as of press time.

  • LA blown out at home by St. Mike...

    A disastrous first quarter put the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team in an early hole from which it would never recover.
    Los Alamos was pummeled by the St. Michael’s Horsemen early and often, with the Horsemen connecting on 7 of 9 shots in the opening quarter en route to a 21-5 first quarter domination.
    St. Mike’s cruised the rest of the way to take a 66-36 decision over the Hilltoppers at Griffith Gymnasium.
    Matthew Barela dropped in 9 points in the first eight minutes and finished with a game-high 13 points for the Horsemen (1-0), who are the defending Class 3A champions and are considered by many the favorite to repeat.
    St. Mike’s had a 15-2 in the first quarter, extending nearly five minutes.
    Los Alamos, which slipped to 0-5 and failed to break the 40-point mark for the third time in those five games, got into early foul trouble — the Horsemen were into the double-bonus early in the second quarter while at the same time had been whistled for only four team fouls — which sent forward Xavier Dennison and center Travis Richins to the bench.
    Filling in at the forward position was junior varsity call-up Tyler Van Anne. Van Anne, in just one-plus quarter of action, dripped in 10 points, pulled down three rebounds and added an assist.
