Billy "White Shoes" Johnson - Honoring an NFL Great!

The Sports Legends of Delaware County has kicked off a funding drive with a goal of $100,000 for the purpose of erecting a statue of former National Football League wide receiver and special teams’ great, Billy “White Shoes” Johnson, who played in the NFL for 14 years.  Billy was born and raised in the Borough of Marcus Hook, attended college at Widener University, and was drafted in the 15th round by the Houston Oilers, Billy’s father Leonard was a full-time police officer with the Marcus Hook Police Department for over 20 years having reached the rank of Sergeant.  Billy was selected by the NFL to be included on their 75th Anniversary All-Time Team as well as their 100th Anniversary All-Time Team. Billy has yet to be voted into the NFL’s Hall of Fame, despite his success on the football field.  The statue is currently projected to be erected in the fall of 2022 with a dedication ceremony to be held at that time.


Billy's fans who would like to make a donation should log onto to access further information or contact Jim Vankoski 610-909-4919.
