While guest hosting Kentucky Sports Radio this morning, Stephen Johnson announced that he was “done” with football. The former JUCO prospect lead the Cats to two straight bowl appearances. Johnson also picked up wins against rivals Tennessee and Louisville in his time at Kentucky. We all know Johnson has been banged up so it’s no surprise that he announced he’ll be having surgery in his knee and both shoulders. With his football career officially over, lets take a look at his five best moments in blue and white:

5. JUCO product shines after Barker goes down

4. Johnson puts the nail in the Coffin vs South Carolina

3. Johnson dives for the endzone vs Georgia Tech

2. Johnson outperforms the Heisman Winner

1. Johnson stuns Rocky Top

Thank you, Stephen!
