Chad Ochocinco's son is a Calif. football player ... but he doesn't wear 85

On Monday, Chad Ochocinco’s son, Chad Johnson Jr., officially followed in his father’s footsteps when he was announced as a high school wide receiver.

Johnson Jr., a 6-foot-3 sophomore at Venice High School in Los Angeles, will suit up as a wide receiver for the Gondoliers. The teen is known as an outstanding athlete and has already emerged as a top baseball prospect in his class, per the Los Angeles Times.

It’s too early to know what to expect of Johnson Jr. come game time, but one thing is certain already: He won’t be sporting his father’s most famous number.
