The San Diego Chargers very own Stevie “The Alien” Johnson is celebrating his 30th birthday today!
He’s only spent one season with the team, but there’s no end to the entertainment Johnson has already provided as a member of the Chargers.
The man is rightfully credited with coining the term “Alien Nation” to describe the group of wide receivers that filled out the Chargers wide receiver roster spots last season, saying “I looked around at us, and I thought about aliens. Everybody knows about aliens. But do they really know about us? Do they really know the work we put in? We feel like we are a different breed, and we’ll be difference makers.”
During his first year with the team, Johnson was hampered by injuries, but still managed to start in eight games, where he caught 45 passes for 497 yards and three touchdowns.
Here’s a look at his first touchdown as a member of the Bolts, a 12-yard catch against the Detroit Lions in Week One.
In case you didn’t know how entertaining or talented Johnson is, here’s a video of him wearing a GoPro at OTAs earlier this season, and here‘s one of him mic’d up. In case you needed more Stevie, here’s a “Meet the Chargers” from last season, where he reveals his favorite movie (It’s the Lion King).
Happy birthday Stevie! Here’s to many more years (and touchdowns)!
