The height of 1m9 and the muscular body at the age of “breaking the buffalo horn” helps Johnson show his superiority in matches. Johnson progressed very quickly when he entered the University of Miami football team and in 1991, at the age of 19, was included in the American football team.

Johnson’s dream of becoming a rugby star, though, soon fell apart. Persistent shoulder and back injuries pushed Johnson’s playing career to a dead end. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in criminology and physiology, Johnson was forced to play for Second Division clubs before retiring from rugby in 1995.
