In part one of our two part interview with Will Johnson, we learned that Johnson’s goal for 2013 is to be more involved with the passing game. The starting full back also believes confidence is an advantage between your second season from your first. You can read the first part of that interview here on Steelers N Stuff.
A starting fullback in the National Football League must be able to run block. That is the job of the position first and foremost. Johnson understands that.
“That comes first and that’s why they pay me,” said Johnson. “It’s run-first and that’s the type of attitude I have to approach each day with.”
Like every other position, each year it is important to get better. Add to your skill and progress from there. Will Johnson has come a long way from his days in West Virginia where he did not play full back. Johnson knows that in this league, you must keep improving your craft.
“I just think mentally, I’ve changed a lot, Johnson said. “Like I was talking about before with the confidence, I think that I feel more comfortable with the offense going into year two. I believe the expectations are little higher. My job is to go out and make big plays and have a nasty attitude towards blocking in the run game. That’s something I definitely look forward to.”
Football season is right around the corner Steeler Nation. Will Johnson seems to be ready for his next challenge as he enters his second season with the black and gold. We will see if he improves from his 15 catch, 137-yard, and one touchdown season.
We would like to thank Will Johnson and the Pittsburgh Steelers Organization for letting us get this interview. Thanks to them, you can only read this interview right here on Steelers N Stuff!
