Johnson, who has put in more than 1,000 hours of community service and wants to work with under-served students, initiated the start of the Paris Johnson Jr. Foundation, a non-profit organization that "exists for the purpose of letting individuals know that their past does not define them."

"I love giving back to kids because I feel like my whole life, people have invested in me as far as helping me with my training, my education, always making sure I had other resources to always compete in the classroom and always compete on the field. I would like to do the same for other people," Johnson said. 

His winning of the Man of the Year award came less than 30 minutes after he was named the Anthony Muñoz Lineman of the Year.
