Former Washington High School graduate Lacee Johnson has co-produced an episode of the ESPN Films 30 for 30 series.

The episode, ‘The ‘85 Bears’, will premier Thursday, Feb. 4 at 9 p.m. on ESPN.

It is scheduled to re-air Friday, Feb. 5 at 3 a.m. and Saturday, Feb. 6 at 1 a.m.

The 1985 Chicago Bears, coached by the fiery Mike Ditka and featuring one of the more eclectic rosters of NFL talent ever-assembled, including William ‘The Refrigerator’ Perry, quarterback Jim McMahon, and the greatness of the running back, Walter Payton, the No. 2-leading rusher in NFL history, ran roughshod over the competition that season, going 15-1.

In the playoffs, the Bears crushed the New York Giants and L.A. Rams by a combined 45-0 score.

In Super Bowl XX, the Bears demolished the New England Patriots, 46-10 to leave their mark as one of the very best NFL teams of all time.

Lacee Johnson is the daughter of Scott and Kim Johnson of Washington C.H.
