Redskins Cornerback And Southern University Product Danny Johnson Gives Away Over 350 Backpacks
By: Omar Cook
With the NFL season approaching, we hear news of teams preparing for training camp, season predictions, and contract talks, but here is a story that goes beyond sports. Washington Redskins Cornerback and former Southern University standout Danny Johnson put together a back to school giveaway in Louisiana this past weekend.
At the event, Danny provided food and also signed bags for the kids. Danny is going into his second season with the Redskins and is already making a major impact off the field. Seeing athletes use their platform to make a difference in their communities is major. Danny went undrafted out of Southern University and has been making the best out of his opportunity on and off the field.
This is the first year that Danny put this event on and he already has plans on doing this for a long time to come.
Not only are we excited to see how this event grows in the next few years but we are looking forward to seeing Danny shine on the football field. Players that know their purpose and understand that it is bigger than football, are players that we should be rooting for.
