Doc Johnson was one of the four or five most important men in my life. He was a guide and a mentor to me and to so many others – more than a trainer but a good man who loved us and guided us to become the men and women we are today. Although I lived away from the campus, I would look forward to the moments that I had with him at the HOF and Reunions. He will be missed by all of us. Rest in Peace my friend and know that you have made a difference in more lives than you ever knew.
