*****Have known ‘Little Will’ since he was about 5 years old and great to see him claim this CIAA honor and it is a tribute to his dad Greg, who died of Cancer four years ago and his dad would have been very proud of Will, if he were still here today, to watch him play…I heard from Will’s sister Taylor a few weeks back and she was raising funds for a “Light the Night” cancer awareness event in Birmingham, Alabama…Good job by both Will and Taylor and great memories of their dad and if you CLICK HERE you will see Will’s photo and it is almost surreal how much ‘Little Will’ looks like his dad Greg….Check it all out and more on the kicker/punter Will Johnson, when you read on below….*****
