Josh Johnson to Compete in Celebrity Call of Duty Tournament

With the sports world ground to a halt, esports are filling a void that’s only barely being covered by the NFL free agency period. The XFL’s very own Josh Johnson has entered Minnesota ROKKR’s celebrity CoD matchup this Saturday to help raise $40,000 for COVID-19 relief.

Johnson, (who is arguably the XFL’s premiere star QB now) is teaming up with professional gamers Censor and Ttinyy for the match, and the squad has dubbed themselves “Cold Gunnas”

No rookie to gaming, the Wildcats QB has been keeping himself busy since the season’s end, and streams NBA 2K, Madden and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

In this tournament, he and his teammates will be diving into Call of Duty: Warzone’s massive Battle Royale mode, where 150 players divided into 50 teams square off in a winner-takes all deathmatch.

Johnson is one of many XFL players doing their bit to help combat the virus, and while we’d all rather be watching him throw touchdowns, Call of Duty is pretty fun too.
