Damien’s Johnson OK with new role in Boise

Damien High Grad Ian Johnson doesn’t mind his dimished role at Boise State.

Former Damien High School running back, who made a name for himself at Boise State in the Broncos’ upset of Oklahoma a few years back in the Fiesta Bowl, is in a more limited role this season. But with Boise State’s current success, he doesn’t seem to mind.
Here’s the story about the former Spartan.
My own memory of Johnson at Damien was how he got me in trouble with then Bishop Amat coach Mike DiFiori. Johnson did some trash talking in my post-game interview after Damien beat Amat in 2002. I went with the quote and learned that I was forever banned from the Bishop Amat sideline by DiFiori.
I wonder if the former Lancers head coach, who is now an assistant at Amat, still has the same power. I will find out next week when I cover the Amat-Loyola game.
But good luck to IJ.
