Earlier this week Texas A&M's star quarterback, Johnny Manziel, was asked to leave the Manning Passing Academy, but he is defending his actions. 

Johnny Manziel has made headlines in the past for what he has said on social media and even his off-the-field lifestyle. It got him in trouble this week when he showed up late to the Manning Passing Academy, which is run by former NFL quarterback Archie Manning. Early reports say that Manziel was hung over, but he is denying that.

Let's not forget that Manziel, a Heisman Trophy winner, is only 20 years old. Should we cut him some slack for wanting to live the lifestyle of a young man? Will the spotlight prove to be too much for him?
