Shea Patterson has played and started one college football game. Apparently, that’s enough for Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason to compare him to a former Heisman Trophy winner.
Now, Patterson’s next opponent is comparing him to Manziel as well. In his weekly press conference, Mason said Patterson reminded him of Manziel.
Derek Mason said Ole Miss QB Shea Patterson reminds him of Johnny Manziel … not the first guy to say that

With plays like this, it’s easy to see why he draw the comparison.
Patterson won the SEC Freshman of the Week award. Patterson was the No. 1 ranked high school quarterback in the country last season. The Rebels and Commodores play in Vanderbilt this week. The game is scheduled for an 8 p.m. ET kick on the SEC Network.
