A member of Clemson’s 1981 NCAA Championship team, along with such defensive notables as William Perry and Terry Kinard,  Johnny  still has dreams about the magical ride the Patriots took to Super Bowl XX. Currently as of 2018 he is the Director of Athletics at Edward Waters College  and the Quality Control Representative for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Johnny is an avid golfer and takes immense pride in playing his entire career for the Patriots.

Definitely not my favorite cards, both the Upper Deck and the Topps card specialize in boring. I mean who thinks a card of a player calling timeout is exciting? (Upper Deck apparently did at the time.)

Johnny Rembert was drafted in the 4th round of the 1983 draft out of Clemson. A nice find by the Patriots at just the right place, Rembert would be named to the Pro Bowl twice during his career in 89 and 90 largely because he was a run stopper, recording  137 tacles in 1988, and 122 tackles in 1989.  Injuries began to set in after that and derailed future Probowl attempts. Johnny played 10 seasons for the Patriots starting 72 games at LILB, RILB, and LOLB for the team.

He was named to the Patriots Hall of Fame in 2009 and currently is the Jaguars Quality Control Representative that oversees uniforms.
