Remembering Blax: Part 1

The first episode of a two part series dedicated the memory of Paulinton “Blax” Johnson, who passed away last week. We hear from those who knew him as they share their memories and insights on one of the most profound and influential footballers and member of the Jamaican community that Connecticut has ever seen.

Joining us are Nick Ballistierri (head coach, Hartford City FC), Jamie Hyde (Hartford City FC), Michael Kane (Agents of Hale) and Tyler Carlos (Newtown Pride FC). Please donate to the family at https://www.gofundme.com/f/blx-007-forever

Do you have a memory of Blax that you want us to know?  Do you want to hear more about this local legend?  Do you have thoughts on Connecticut soccer on any level?  Let us know, we’d love to hear from you, leave us a message at (512) NUTMEGS or tweet at us @nutmeg_state.
