The comeback: former Baylor linebacker prepares for his future

By  | 

WACO, Texas (KWTX) Clay Johnston was Baylor's leading tackler and ranked third in the Big 12 when he suffered a season-ending knee injury.

"This injury has played a huge role in kinda creating something inside of me that wants me to continue to play football," said Clay Johnston.

Five months after surgery, he's starting to feel like his old self, and because of the Coronavirus pandemic, his dad is working from home.

As a long time NFL strength coach and current member of the Carolina Panthers staff, that means he is home working with Clay.

Clay attended the NFL combine and said he spoke with around 18-20 teams. Physically he only did the bench press and was looking forward to pro days to show more, which the NFL canceled because of COVID-19.
