Description:
Steve Johnson (born 4 July 1983) is an Australian rules footballer for the Geelong Football Club in the Australian Football League.

His 2007 season was capped off when Johnson lead the Cats to victory in the Grand Final, collecting a premiership medallion, and winning the Norm Smith Medal for best on ground in the Grand Final.
