Jon Johnson joined the Elmont Cardinals Football Club family in 2003 and has had a front row seat to the club's recent story. When Elmont Online talked with Johnson it was clear that he, as current president of the club, was focused on giving the community’s youth after school team sports options that promote the physical, academic and social well-being of young people and the families that are Cardinals. “One of our goals is to produce more scholar-athletes” said Johnson.
Johnson has been the club’s president since 2005 and has steered the club, with the help of an all volunteer board, through its various ups and downs. “More ups, thank god” said Johnson.
