Football Player Plans Career in Deaf Culture
During today's Rose Bowl between TCU and Wisconsin, keep your eye out for safety Tejay Johnson. He has started 37 games, is the leader of his team's secondary... and knows sign language. Johnson is majoring in the rehabilitation of the deaf at Texas Christian. His motivation for picking this area of study was his cousin, who struggled to communicate with her family.

Johnson says his faith has helped him make the right decisions. Read more about him here.
