    "I said, 'That's awesome," Johnson told the magazine, about finding out he'd been named SMA. "And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is. And then I thought, 'Wow, we've pretty much reached the pinnacle.' I'm not quite too sure where we go from here. I've done it all, this is it."
