Stevie Johnson donates $16,000 to send pee-wee football team to championship

We all like feel-good stories, especially when they involve former Kentucky players. Former Cat Stevie Johnson has made a home for himself in SoCal with the San Diego Chargers, but he hasn’t forgotten his Northern California roots. According to CBS Sacramento, Stevie recently donated $16,000 to the Solano County Warriors, an undefeated pee-wee football team from Fairfield, California, to help them go to the National Championships in Kissimmee, Florida. Stevie attended Angelo Rodriguez High in Fairfield.

Stevie posted the following message on Facebook about the donation:

It just felt right. Nothing will stop these boys now! Go get them Fairfield! #peeweefootball #hometown

The story is even more heartwarming when you hear about the team’s coach, Andre Johnson. Johnson was paralyzed at the age of 23 by gunshot wounds to his back, chest, and stomach. He uses his story to motivate his players and steer them in the right direction in life.

Go Warriors.

    Awesome. Good luck to the kids. It’s a small thing in the grand scheme of life, but an experience they’ll always remember. Hopefully it will motivate them to achieve their goals and ultimately give back down the road.

    Good for him. This liberal mentality is getting old. The team was too good so they changed the rules to pick 2 random team’s to go play instead of the best 2. You earn it, you win it. How it should be.
