    Leonard Johnson: not only a good player, but a good guy too

    went to the rec tonight and played some basketball and as i was leaving i saw Leonard Johnson playin some wii baseball with a disadvantaged young man, he was having a good time playing the game with him too.

    I guess i am making this thread because i know alot of people think he is not a good person because of his questionable actions on the playing field, but he was very friendly to me and every one who was there, and i think he gets a bad rap.

    Good news and fun, too!

    I think the bad rap came from the early flurry of late hits. That habit ended, and he went back to showing the talent that we all believe he has.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Never thought he was a bad person.....
    His emotion on the field has nothing to do with his personality off the field(I do remember the late hits he made). Good to hear though. Thanks for sharing.

    Leonard's a great guy off the field. Funny as hell too. A lot of our football players have great personalities.

    I'm very happy that LJ stayed and I think ISU will end up being a great place for him. He's just one of those guys that has that special something and the potential to be a great leader for this team. Glad to hear he's a good guy on campus too.

    I doubt anyone ever thought he was a bad guy. He made some pretty boneheaded plays on the field, this last year, though.

    He's got a TON of potential, but he's got a LONG way to go yet as a football player.

    He was also sitting with kids in the front row at the beauty and the beast. Not sure if he was talking to some adults that they were with or not.

    yes i really like the fire he brings on the defensive side of the ball.

    I know his passion sometime translates into late hits which in the stat book looks really bad. But the players see that and in return it gets them fired up to lay down the lumber on the next play

    gotta love the passion lol

    Re: Leonard Johnson: not only a good player, but a good guy too

    It is great to hear stories like this.

    Usually, all we hear is the bad news, while the countless 1000's of good deeds go unreported.

    Thanks again for your post.

    The funniest player is Scott Haughton. He pulls the cord to the Cy-ride bus every 5 seconds. When the driver tells whoever to do it to knock it off, he shouts in a girl's voice "I'm sorry"
