The 6-foot-3, 198-pound senior wide receiver caught 50 passes for 826 yards and 12 touchdowns this past season, leading the Bruins (8-2) to the New England Prep School Athletic Council Mike Silipo Bowl Game. Selected to play in January’s U.S. Army All-American Bowl, Johnson also ran for a score and returned a kickoff for a touchdown this fall. A two-time All-New England honoree, he concluded his prep football career with 2,167 receiving yards and 33 touchdowns.
Johnson has maintained a B average in the classroom and represents one of the state’s top academic candidates in meeting the Gatorade award’s broad criteria. He remains undecided upon a collegiate destination.
Johnson has volunteered locally as a board member with Jack and Jill of America, which focuses on developing leadership and community service among African American youth.
