RB LARRY JOHNSON A WORK OF ART ON AND OFF THE FIELD

http://www.kcchiefs.com/news/2005/12...off_the_field/


Much like the famous artist Vincent van Gogh, Kansas City Chiefs RB Larry Johnson is an enigma of sorts. While many know him for his gridiron glory, he often paints masterpieces that few are able to enjoy. Even though there aren’t always 79,451 rabid fans at attention, his work in the local community is just as important to this third-year pro as scoring a game-winning touchdown.
His rise to football stardom is well chronicled. After serving as RB Priest Holmes’ understudy at the start of his career, this Pennsylvania native began to set the League on fire at the end the 2004 season. This year, with accolades such as AFC Offensive Player of the Week and Month already under his belt, he’s more than justified the Chiefs confidence in him. Yet, shortly after arriving in Kansas City as the Chiefs first round draft selection in 2003 (27th overall), Johnson was just as anxious to make a mark in his new Midwestern home as he was on the football field.That’s because he’s aware that not everyone is lucky enough to have as strong of a support system as his family provides. A perfect example is the recently founded LJ’s Legacy and Growth Youth Foundation. Dedicated to enhancing the lives of youth and promoting development through collaborative partnerships, the foundation is making a difference with today’s children. By nurturing positive thinking, behavior and attitudes that foster a strong self image, Johnson hopes to encourage these children to believe strongly in who they are.He’s also spearheaded the team’s Junior Player Development (JPD) campaign. A program seeking to ready middle school-aged children for the rigors of high school football, JPD has now completed a pair of successful seasons locally thanks in part to Johnson’s visits and guidance on the practice field. All JPD participants receive counseling through a life skills/character development curriculum that’s incorporated throughout all on-field activities. Every week, a different life skills message is designated as a theme. Those themes are then addressed through the context of football. Instructors will make connections between life skills as they are applied in football as well as other areas of life, especially school, at home and in the community.Johnson has even sponsored a pair of local youth teams. A collegiate Penn State Nittany Lion, Johnson appropriately sponsored “LJ’s Young Lions” in both a tee-ball and pee wee football format. In addition to helping finance the equipment and uniforms for these aspiring athletes, he also hosted these children at a Chiefs home game during the 2005 season.As you can see, this degree-holder in Integrative Art might just be in the midst of creating one of his most important masterpieces… helping tomorrow’s leaders reach success. Chances are, even if you knew his 1,108 rushing yards this year represents the third-most in the AFC or that his five consecutive 100-yard rushing performances have tied Holmes for the team record, you didn’t realize that this artist’s canvas is more filled with the bright colors of helping others than the limelight of football fame.

So, when he was a an unhappy backup, the media chose to highlight the negative aspects of his personal life.

Now he's becoming a star, and the media now wants to paint a different picture.

His new agent is doing a really good job changing his image. Must have hired a competent p/o person as well. Ever since LJ got the new agent, he's been saying the right things or not talking at all.

For the most part, the Chiefs official website and "the media" are two completely different things. Some of the media are still trying to portray him in a negative light.
