The 2014 Heisman Trophy winner won’t be announced for another 10 months, but it appears Jameis Winston will have some serious competition from if he plans to repeat.

No, Johnny Manziel is not returning to school, but sources have told Yahoo Sports that this squirrel is considered by many coaches around the country to be a dark horse candidate to win college football’s most prestigious award.

Look at that perfect Heisman form. If this little guy can protect a football as well as he can this acorn, we could be in store for a record-breaking season.
