Nicknamed "Moose" by former teammate Babe Laufenberg, Johnston became a full-time starter in 1991 and was  key member of the Cowboy's three Super Bowl winning teams (1993, 1994, and 1996).

A two-time Pro Bowl selection in 1993 and 1994 (the first ever Pro Bowl Fullback), he played in 149 consecutive games, including post seasons.  He finished his career catching 294 passes for 2,227 years and 14 touchdowns, as well as 232 rushes for 753 yard and eight touchdowns.  He had a career-high 50 receptions in 1993.

Johnston has contributed time to many charities including the Special Olympics, Children's Cancer Fund, Cystic Fibrosis and Literacy Instruction for Texas (LIFT).  He  has served as honorary chairman for MDA's "Aisles of Smiles" campaign, an organization he has served for over ten years, and the American Cancer Society's Gunslingers' Ball.  In 1999 Johnston's numerous community service activities led to his nomination for the prestigious "Whizzer White Humanitarian Award."
