Governor congratulates Te'o as Heisman runner-up

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Gov. Neil Abercrombie has congratulated Hawaii-born Notre Dame senior linebacker Manti Te'o for finishing as the runner up for college football's top individual prize Saturday night.

Abercrombie released a statement Saturday calling Te'o "a standard for others to achieve," and said he represents strong family and Hawaii values.

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was named the winner of the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night, becoming the first freshman to win the award.

Abercrombie congratulated Te'o for winning six other major awards, including three honors he took home Thursday at the 22nd Home Depot College Football Awards show. One of those was the Maxwell Award for the nation's most outstanding player.
