Dave McMahon -- Who was the first person you told that you earned a football scholarship at Georgia?
Jason Johnson -- I told my mom. She screamed! She was at work, but she did not care, she was proud.
DM -- Does your willing to play both fullback and tailback improve your chances to play more?
JJ -- I think so. It also helps me in both positions, because I know what the other position is wanting.
DM -- Fullbacks are generally set for bigger guys, you are listed at 191... are you bigger now?
JJ -- I am close to 210 pounds now. I am still small compared to some of the other fullbacks.
DM -- You still can hit... right?
JJ -- I have never been afraid to hit someone. You can say I have a little man syndrome. I look small, but I play big.
DM -- Are you still playing special teams?
JJ -- As of now I am on kickoff, kickoff return and punt block.
DM -- People around here, know what southern high school football is like, but you are from Chicago... what is Chicago high school football like?
JJ -- It is big, not nearly as big as it is down here, but we turn out a few players every now and then.
DM -- Are you a White Sox fan or Cubs fan?
JJ -- White Sox... I probably lived about 10 minutes away from the stadium.
DM -- Anywhere in Athens, has a pizza that can match the Chicago pizza?
JJ -- No one has come close yet.
