Justin Johnson, a senior cornerback from Jackson, Tenn., shares a moment with Theresa Kern, who has lived in Carbondale for 41 years, as he collects donations for the Carbondale Good Samaritan House and the Murphysboro Food Pantry on Feb. 6 outside Schuck’s. SIU’s football team annually participates in the “Souper Bowl of Caring,” an effort to raise money for the hungry and those in need. In addition to the cause, Johnson said his favorite part of the experience was getting to introduce himself to the people of Carbondale. “We never really have time to get out in the community between school and practice,” Johnson said. “So it’s been a fun experience and good to let people actually see our faces without our helmets on … everybody can see who we are and what we’re really about.”
