The football team will wear helmet decals with Johnson's No. 56, and the senior lineman's jersey number will be painted on the field for Friday night's home playoff game against Cleveland.
“We talked to the team about the process of dealing with a time like this, just putting one foot in front of the other,” Anderson said. “I think the kids need to know it's important to move forward, even when it isn't easy.
“We told them that the score of the game isn't important right now, but it's important how we react, how we handle this adversity, what our effort is like, our commitment to each other, and what we learn from this — those are the things that are important. We're not going to worry about the score. But there are other things we can do to make ourselves bigger, better people.”
