4. Which athlete do you look up to on a college/professional level? Why? The person I look up to in the NFL is Russell Wilson from the Seattle Seahawks; because he doesn’t let people stop him from being one of the best quarterback in the game. On the collegiate level, I look up to my brother, Ryan Johnson, who is the punter at University of Louisville. He has taught me that hard work eventually does pay.

5. What is your favorite movie quote?Just when I thought you couldn’t possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this… and totally redeem yourself!” Harry- Dumb and Dumber.

6. How does your faith impact your approach to sports? My faith helps me dramatically in football. It helps me feel reassured that God is always with me and is guiding me while I'm out on the field playing.

7. What is your favorite cartoon character? Timmy Turner- Fairly Odd Parents.

8. All-time favorite board game? Trouble.

14. Favorite junk/comfort food? Double Stuf Oreo w/ ice cold milk.

15. What is your favorite hour of the day? Why? 2:46, because that’s when school is over and football begins.

16. What is your nickname and how did you get it? Everyone usually just calls me either “Johnson” mainly because we have five different Austin’s on the team or “Kicker.”

17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? The Humane Society.

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? I can quote every episode of “That’s So Raven.”

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? Forward, to find out if I will turn into a version of my father (which could be good or bad).

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? I would ask my Uncle Jeramie if he ever beat my dad in the eating contest at Huber’s.
