Dave Johnson
Reporter, Sr
My Role

I'm a sports reporter with emphasis on Peninsula District football, basketball and baseball. But like everyone on our staff, I do a wide range of things. I also write a Peninsula District blog.
My Biography

I've been at the Daily Press since 1987, a time before iPods (what are those again?) and cell phones. I'm an '87 graduate of Virginia Tech, where I occasionally went to class but primarily hung out at Greeks Cellar. I live in York County with my lovely wife and two adorable but somewhat-hyper little boys. Not to mention Roger the dog and Rito the cat.

My Interests

Music of all sorts (the Beatles to Pink Floyd to Living Colour to the Dixie Chicks and plenty inbetween). Politics (neither party is mine, not the jackass or the elephant), sports (let's go Red Sox!!), TV/movies. But mainly, spending time with my wife and boys.
