Johnson worked hard over the off-season and clearly grasps what it takes to be a Red Raider receiver. He did it all as a wide receiver Saturday night, catching passes over the middle, streaking down the sideline, and in the flats. He showed his great athleticism on his touchdown catch. The defensive back was holding Johnson on the far sideline when Johnson broke free and caught a 47-yard strike from Hodges. He went on to do the Red Raider leap, drawing the first un-sportsman like penalty of the year. I forgive him for this. Let me score a touchdown for the Red Raiders, and I'll show you what it means to party in the end zone. Now that Robert Johnson knows how it feels to score, hopefully he will have many more opportunities and feel less like jumping into the stands.
This is the most impressive start for a receiver that I have ever witnessed, thus garnering him the player of the week award. Here is to Robert Johnson and his continued success! Thanks for choosing to stay, and thanks for being a Red Raider!
