Hawaii-born Te'o comes in second for Heisman vote


HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii born Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o didn't capture enough votes to win the Heisman trophy.

Te'o was a finalist and finished second in the voting for college football's top individual prize Saturday night.

The award instead went to Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, who became the first freshman to win the award.

Had he won, Te'o would have been the first purely defensive player to win the award.

Despite missing the Heisman, Te'o has won six major awards since the end of Notre Dame's regular season. He was honored three times at the 22nd Home Depot College Football Awards show Thursday night at Disney World, including the Maxwell Award for the nation's most outstanding player.
