His love for the university and the city of Tallahassee has remained strong, and he has always helped the coaching staff and the program in front of and behind the scenes. Johnson continues to give back to the community and has partnered with FlexWork Sports Management to host a youth camp on campus this summer at the Dunlap Athletic Training Facility.

The camp will take place on July 16th from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. and is open to boys and girls ages 6 to 13. Raising Cane's will provide meals for campers. Registration can be found here.

“Throughout the day, former Florida State defensive lineman and current New York star Jermaine Johnson and our coaches will impart valuable football knowledge and hands-on instruction to your child in a fun, high-energy and positive environment,” reads an excerpt on their website. “Camp activities include lectures, fundamental skills and competition stations. All campers will be grouped by age to ensure an appropriate level of competition and instruction.”

FlexWork Sports' goal is to connect professional athletes with youth and make it affordable for all demographics. According to their website, high school players are not allowed to participate in their events due to NCAA regulations.

Johnson led the ACC in both tackles for loss (18) and sacks (12) in his only season at FSU. He also had two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and 70 tackles, earning him ACC Defensive Player of the Year honors. He had 7.5 sacks, an interception, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery last season with the Jets and is becoming a star in New York.
