USC's Stafon Johnson: Not running away - Daily Breeze
He came to USC to run. But the one time Stafon Johnson chose not to has turned out to be his biggest play.

Part of the 3-headed monster...class at tailback last year, Johnson immediately found himself in one doghouse or another. While classmates...prospered, Johnson was banished to the scout team...

...It was hardly the stuff of dreams for the former Dorsey High star, who grew up in the shadow of the Coliseum.

"A lot of people would have run from that. They would have been embarrassed in his hometown," USC running backs coach Todd McNair said. "It says a lot about the kid's character. He sees the bullet, looked at it in its eye, and attacked it.

"And it's paid off for him."...
