Chris Johnson ready for finale

GREENVILLE, N.C. - Chris Johnson is first Pirate to garner All-America accolades since Travis Williams' honorable mention selection in 2004 as a punt returner. He also becomes ECU's initial first-team choice since Tom Scott earned similar honors from The Sporting News and Football News in 1992.

Not bad for a guy who many wrote off as ill equipped for the job. But it wasn't always as fun when ECU was 2-9 under John Thompson - the coach who brought Johnson to Greenville.
