Randy Johnson graduated from Sam Houston High School in San Antonio,

Texas in 1962.  He was the first quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons in their

inaugural season of 1966.  At the time of his death, Randy Johnson was

penniless and virtually friendless.  He was living in the backyard shed of

an acquaintance's family.  "He didn't leave any tracks," said Alex Hawkins,

a teammate during that first Falcons season, when asked if any of his

fellow teammates were in contact with him after his football career.
