Kevin Johnson | Pace Academy Offensive Line Coach

Show Notes:

  • Currently changing his lifestyle of eating and exercise because of his obesity which he knew would eventually kill him
  • Listened to the book “Can’t Hurt Me” by David Goggins which motivated him to start changing his health
  • Grew up on the streets of Brooklyn, NY and basketball was his first love in sports
  • Knew that sports could be a way out but he also had the temptations of living a life on the streets
  • Was mentored to leave Brooklyn to attend a military school in Virginia at 13-years old and immediately hated it trying to do anything to get expelled
  • Made his way to Lackawanna College in Scranton, PA where he was convinced to play football and knew that if he didn’t then he would return to living the streets
  • After getting a scholarship to play at the University of South Carolina he knew he wanted to coach so he could help others as he had been helped
  • Helped Pace Academy to their first state title in 2015
  • Even though he’s a New York Knicks fan, he still believes that Michael Jordan is the GOAT
  • Words of Wisdom from Kevin Johnson: “Continue to help others.”
