The Houston Texans have the best record in the AFC, and that’s due in large part to their go-to Pro Bowl wide receiver Andre Johnson.
Drafted third overall out of Miami in 2003, Johnson quickly became one of the elite receivers in the NFL, leading the league in receptions in 2006. This year Johnson is back at it again — he and the Texans are poised to make a deep run in the playoffs.
But before Johnson started putting in work on Sundays he was a three-sport standout at Miami Senior High School (Fla.), making a name for himself with his size, quickness, and skill set. Despite all of his accomplishments, Johnson still vividly remembers catching a game-winning touchdown pass in a playoff game during his senior year of high school.
Take a look at Johnson’s path to stardom in this week’s Way Back When.
