Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. William "Billy" Arthur Johnson, aka "White Shoes" (born January 27, 1952 in Boothwyn, Pennsylvania), is a former American football player in the National Football League from 1974 through 1988. He is known for his elaborate celebrations in the end zone. Johnson earned his famous nickname as a high schooler at Chichester High School in Boothwyn, Pennsylvania, where he dyed his shoes as part of a dare. Ever since then, he has been referred to by his nickname. He was a very fast athlete, but his 5'9" size turned off prominent universities from recruiting him. Billy ended up going to Widener College in Pennsylvania, a small Division III school, where he was a member of Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity. While there, he had a highly successful career, but was barely noticed by professional scouts. He was eventually discovered by the Houston Oilers, who drafted him in the fifteenth round of the 1974 NFL Draft.
