Due mainly to Johnston’s contributions, the NFL created the fullback position in the Pro Bowl.

As a Cowboy, Johnston was a true Iron Man, playing in 149 consecutive games from 1989-97, was selected to two Pro Bowls – the first prototype fullback named to the 1994 squad – and won three Super Bowl rings. Perhaps more than statistics can measure, Johnston was known, and remains regarded, as one of the best power blocking backs in the history of the game and lead blocker for Hall of Fame and all-time NFL rushing leader Emmitt Smith.


Johnston was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the second round (39th overall) of the 1989 NFL Draft.
