As a professional football player, Michael Johnson is always enhancing his skills to become a consistent champion on the field.

As a young man growing up in Selma, Alabama, Johnson excelled in high school athletics and academics and was soon recruited by Georgia Tech. That is where he realized and ultimately proved that he had what it takes to play professional football.

Just as it is in other areas of life, the game of football requires skills, talents and a mindset that will allow you to increase your odds of achieving success and help you overcome the challenges that you will most undoubtedly encounter. As the defensive end for the Cincinnati Bengals, Johnson understands the value of preparation, planning and developing a positive outlook on life.

He learned those traits from his parents who taught him the importance of making good decisions, trusting in God and living by example. Learning such great lessons from his parents has enabled him to build lasting relationships as a professional football player and as a community leader.

He’s not only a champion on the field, but he’s also a champion for thousands of young kids. As the founder of the MJ93 Foundation, Johnson is positively impacting the lives of young children through mentoring, football camps, workshops and other partnerships and activities that encourages them to dream big and never give up. He realized at an early age that there were others less fortunate than himself, and it has inspired him to seek ways to uplift others.

The mission of the MJ93 Foundation is to teach young people the importance of education, proper nutrition and exercise and to help them realize their potential and capitalize on that potential as they mature into adulthood.
