The Cleveland Gladiators are part of the Arena Football League and are currently ranked #1 with a 14:1 record. Read more about the Cleveland Gladiators by visiting their website.
Johnson was a member of the 2013 All-New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) Second Team, starting in all nine of his appearances at left tackle. The 6-4, 310-pound lineman saw action in 37 games during his four-year career as a Pioneer (2010-13), starting 31 times. He capped his time at WP by participating in the 2014 Dream Bowl Senior Football All-Star Game Jan. 20 in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
The last William Paterson football student-athlete to receive an NFL tryout was wide receiver Joel Rivera, who participated in the New York Jets' 2010 camp.
