Daddy don’t play that! Keyshawn Johnson snatches son off Nebraska football team after son is busted with marijuana

by Angela Davis|@jerseygirlsport It's parenting done RIGHT, and its name is Keyshawn Johnson! He recently pulled his son, Keyshawn Johnson, Jr. off the Nebraska football team after his son was cited for marijuana possession after university police found pot and drug paraphernalia in his dorm. Daddy wasn't having it! Keyshawn Sr. confirmed his son is having 'several seats' for about six months.
I never asked him,” Johnson Sr. said referencing his son. “At the end of the day, I don’t think that decision was in his hands. He squandered that decision. He still wants to play football, and he still wants to play for Nebraska. But if you don’t do the things you’re supposed to do, under the guidelines of me, it’s not going to happen.”
“One thing you will not do as my son is you will not embarrass Nebraska, you will not embarrass Mike Riley and you will not embarrass this family,” the elder Johnson said. “If you mature and you’re ready to resume your football career and academic goals, then Nebraska will be ready to embrace you.”
I'm sooo proud out Keyshawn Sr. for stepping up and doing the right thing. He's not allowing his name and NFL popularity to indulge the privileged and entitled attitude his son may have. We need more parents like him. In the mean time, Jr. will need to catch a bleacher.
