Ohio State’s Paris Johnson and Harry Miller to Distribute Beds in Nicaragua
Ohio State junior offensive tackle Paris Johnson announced Friday night that he and redshirt junior offensive lineman harry miller are teaming up to raise funds for 100 beds to be distributed to children in Nicaragua.
“We are requesting sponsorship for a bed,” Johnson said in a note posted to Twitter. “$130 gets two kids to sleep in a bed and off the ground at night. With your donation, you will receive a photo of the child and his bed.
Johnson previously established a foundation in his name that is “dedicated to empowering and serving disabled veterans and disadvantaged student-athletes with dignity and respect.”
He has raised more than $10,000 to serve more than 100 veterans and 350 student-athletes since he was a five-star prospect at Cincinnati Princeton. This includes organizing gift and toy drives during the holidays and providing food, clothing and toiletries to the homeless.
Johnson started all 13 games at right guard for the Buckeyes last season, but is expected to move to left tackle next season with junior Nicolas Little Brother declaring for the 2022 NFL Draft.
Miller, meanwhile, is a board member of Mission For Nicaragua, a nonprofit organization that runs a school and distributes food and medicine to less fortunate families in Los Brasiles.
The former five-star prospect from Buford, Georgia, has participated in annual mission trips to Central America and was recently named to the AFCA Good Works team for his “exemplary community service, academic dedication and impact on and off of the land”, which includes donating all of its name, image and likeness earnings to humanitarian efforts in Nicaragua.
Miller played just 26 snaps in two games last season as he faced health issues that kept him out of the first four games and a knee injury that ended his year prematurely . He was wrestling sophomore in red shirt Luke Wypler be Ohio State‘s starting center before then and will likely compete for a spot at one of the guard positions this fall.
