For two decades, drug addiction consumed John Michael Johnson's life. "I was not an actual member of society at all," he said.
Before Mr. Johnson began rehab, he said, "I was slowly killing myself."
He got sober in 2019, obtained a driver's licence, and moved into a new San Antonio apartment with his girlfriend. When Covid struck, they were planning for the future and both were furloughed in April 2020.

After last Saturday's dramatic performance in the Southeastern Conference Championship game win over Georgia, the University of Alabama quarterback was the clear favorite for this award. He set a conference record with 461 yards including 421 in air.
While six-figure players have been the most prominent, thousands of athletes are making just enough to pay for books and date nights, as part of name, image, and likeness agreements.
