Super Bowl-winning QB Brad Johnson’s trick shots featured on TikTok

Brad Johnson is having fun as a trick-shot artist.

The former Florida State and NFL quarterback is attracting attention on the internet for his array of trick shots and throws with a basketball and football.

Johnson may have earned four football and two basketball letters for the Seminoles (1987-91) and directed the Tampa Bay Bucs to their first Super Bowl 18 years ago.

But his highlight reel now features a “DOINK Challenge.”

Johnson’s 70-plus short videos usually end with “Big Bad Brad 14” — his username online — bending towards the camera, grinning and either pumping his fist or flashing the “Big Bad Brad 14” hat given to him following his Super Bowl win. 

“I am trying to be creative with it, creating different shots nobody has seen before,” said Johnson, 53, who lives in Athens, Georgia. “When that last shot goes in, it’s pure joy, pure excitement, pure fun. It’s skill, but a little luck, too.

“I am just having a good time with it.”

Brad Johnson discovered TikTok during the pandemic

It was during the pandemic lockdown last year when Johnson discovered social media platform TikTok. Since he wasn’t invited by his family to appear on its dance videos, Johnson learned how to edit and post videos online of his career at FSU and 15 seasons in the NFL.

Further bored — “All we were doing was working out, eating and watching Netflix,” Johnson said — he ventured into creating quirky trick shots.
