After graduating from high school, Chad Johnson transferred between multiple colleges as different football teams attempted to recruit him each year.
Johnsn won the Fiesta Bowl while playing with Oregon State University and was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals the following year. Johnson played successfully for the Bengals, but his successes on the field were often overshadowed by what many considered his "diva-like" behavior.
His propensity for bragging and his continual disregard for authority made problems for everyone.
Though he was named to the Pro Bowl team six times, the Bengals eventually decided to let Johnson go for the health of their team.
Zits is a comic strip written by cartoonist Jerry Scott and illustrated by Jim Borgman about the life of Jeremy Duncan, a 16-year-old high school sophomore (previously a 15-year-old for the life of the comic).
High School: Duncanville HS (Duncanville, TX) School: Texas A&M University (College Station, TX) Debut: April 6, 1999 (Age 24-059d, 15,010th in MLB history) vs.
Set in central Ohio suburbia, the strip centers on Jeremy as he tries to balance his family life, social life, the academic demands of high school and his plans for the future, often with a heavy dose of surrealism, making it stand out from being just a typical teenager cartoon strip.
A friend suggested he begin a strip about a teenager.
He is named after Jeremy Clyde of the 1960s rock duo Chad and Jeremy (although one strip shows his parents named him after a lyric in "Joy to the World" by Three Dog Night, "Jeremiah was a bullfrog".) and was once mentioned to have an older brother named Chad, who is away in college.
Jeremy spends much of his time with his friends and trying to impress love interest and part-time girlfriend, Sara Toomey.
