It’s the bye week for the Kansas City Chiefs, but James-Michael Johnson still went to work on Friday.
The 2007 Rodriguez High graduate was principal for a day at his alma mater and found being an administrator “eye opening.”
Johnson, who’s been thrust into the starting lineup for the Chiefs at right inside linebacker because of injuries, arrived on campus at 7:30 a.m. and spent the next seven hours at the school.
By the end of the day he had an appreciation for the work done by Clarence Isadore, insisting that the real principal must wear “comfortable shoes” because his own feet were sore from all the walking he did.
“I talked to some classes, gave them some words of encouragement,” Johnson said. “They did a little rally at lunchtime. That was cool.”
