Alex Johnson makes inspirational return for Sydney Swans in NEAFL against Canberra Demons "It's been a long time between drinks between playing," Johnson said.
"Just to get back out there, finally at the end of a road of a oakley flak lot of hard work and a pretty tough journey, it's awesome." Johnson admits it was a weird feeling getting prepared for the game he'd almost forgotten how to, given he's barely put oakley racing jacket his footy shorts on since early 2013 except for team photos. But the crowd was right behind him from the opening bounce, with huge cries of "let's go AJ" ringing out from the Don Bradman Stand as he lined up on the wing. "It was a bit strange, a strange feeling getting out there," Johnson said. "For the first little period of the game I just didn't really know what I was doing, oakley shades men I probably look like that as well. "But just to be out there with a bunch of boys that I absolutely love and this club, to be able to represent them as well, it was awesome." Johnson donned the No. 2 instead of the No. 34 he used to wear in a nod to his premiership teammate and Swans coach Rhyce Shaw. Shaw had nothing but praise for the 25 year old, who has moved mountains in his bid to return to the elite level. "I'm amazed with just how he's got through each and every day really," Shaw said. "There's no greater example of mental toughness and resilience than Alex and a lot of our boys take a lot out of what he does and how he goes about it." Shaw says the moment Johnson's snap sailed through the goals in the second term the vibe "was like we'd won the grand final to be honest". Swans senior players Franklin, Hannebery, DaneRampe, Jake Lloyd, Tom Papley, Dean Towers and Nic Newmanflew into Canberra the morning after knocking over o oakley the Melbourne Demons to celebrate Johnson's return to footy. Even though the kick sailed wide, the Swans stars couldn't wipe the smiles off their faces, so proud were they of their teammate for battling back to this level. "They don't have to do that stuff and that just shows what an impact he's had on the club," Shaw said. "The boys wanted to be here for him and it's good to see."CANBERRA DEMONS1.1 1.2 3.3 7.5 (47) SYDNEY SWANS4.6 14.13 18.15 20.18 (138) Canberra Goal Kickers:R. Pollock 3, A. Bruce, D. Roberts, J.
