Jessica and Eric flew to Connecticut in order for Eric to be among the legends at Yale Bowl today .
Jessica is usually the one under the spotlights, but Eric is a celebrity of his own and Jess is right there by his side.
Eric set many school records as a Wide Receiver such as the Yale records for single-season receptions (73), single-season receiving yardage (874), career receptions (168), career receiving yardage (2034), single-season receiving touchdowns (12), and career receiving touchdowns (21) and many of these records are still in place after 15 years. As if his exploits catching the ball were not enough, Johnson was named second-team All-Ivy both as a receiver and a punter in 1999. He also excels in the classroom, and in 1999 he was named a first-team GTE Academic All-American.
Here is Eric signing the picture of “the catch”. A picture from the game where Eric made a shoestring catch to put Yale ahead of Harvard ( mortal enemies) by 24-21 in the last 29 seconds left of the game.
