Dennis Johnson has done many great things for the state of Kentucky, but none compare to what he encountered Sunday afternoon.

The former Kentucky linebacker and current Woodford County head football coach was driving home from church in Harrodsburg on US-68 when he saw a motorist in trouble.  The car was smoking as a man struggled to get his dog out of the vehicle.  Johnson arrived just in time.  See the story from WKYT:

    I worked with DJ for a while before he got into coaching. This story doesn’t surprise me- he is a super nice person.
