90° Johnson was once a promising tight end with a possible NFL career ahead of him. Until the accident… After breaking free on a short crossing route, he found himself running down the open field all the way to the end zone. He was VERY excited about his 90 yard reception for a touchdown and began to celebrate by spiking the ball over the cross bar of the goal post. Well, he did not properly anticipate the burst of adrenaline running through his veins and the leap he made was incredible. Not only did he spike the football over the cross bar, but he continued to fly through the air holding an Air Jordan-like pose. Unfortunately for him, he found the goal post itself! In that horrifying moment, he suddenly realized that he had forgotten one piece of very important safety gear. The one piece he really should have remembered. The screams of pain echoed throughout the stadium and to his horror the last thing he remembered hearing was the team trainer saying, “I ain’t touching this one!”
The accident left him angry and he spent years venting. Constant reminders of his affliction were all around, especially after the first Bills Super Bowl. The Scott Norwood cartoons showing him at a urinal going “wide right” just hit far too close to home.
Now, at last, he has found a place where he “fits in,” a place where he doesn’t mind hearing “get bent!”
