Carolina Cobras re-sign FB DaShawn Johnson.


The Cobras are happy to announce the return of 2019 NAL Second Team All-NAL FB DaShawn Johnson (6’4” 320 William Patterson University) for the 2020 season.

After a season when he set the Carolina Cobras record for most rushes with 36 and had 45 yards and 6 TDs rushing, the big man also showed off his hands with four receptions for 27 yards and TDs receiving, he is returning for 2020.

Johnson is no stranger to Cobra Nation, but he has a lot of experience playing football.  He played for the LA Kiss and Cleveland Gladiators of the AFL, and also previously played for the Massachusetts Pirates.

When asked about his message for Cobra Nation all he simply said was “Rare Breed has returned.”
