The waiting continues


Now that NIU’s football season is over, there is not much left for the players to do while waiting for next season, unless you are a senior and your football career is coming to a sudden halt.

NIU tailback, LeShon Johnson, is an exception to the seniors at NIU. Johnson, who just about locked up the national rushing title, will most likely be drafted in the first rounds of the NFL draft. But he won’t have to wait until next season to play football.

The Hula Bowl, the Blue-Gray Bowl, and the Senior Bowl gave Johnson invitations to appear in their bowls, and now that their is no more NIU football to worry about, he can make his choice.

Before Johnson faced the defense of Mississippi, he said that he was leaning towards the Senior Bowl, which is held in Mobile, Alabama, but if he reached the 2,000 yard mark, he wouldn’t mind going to Hawaii.

Sources have also revealed LeShon may have been invited to Alabama to promote the bowl next week. When officials at Senior Bowl headquarters were asked about the possibility, they responded by saying, “You guys know more about this than we thought (you did.)” They also added that they knew of his plans, but would not make a statement.
