Leesburg Yellow Jackets vs Eustis Panthers, High School Football Game

Johnson Big Man In Jacket Future

By Sports Staff
The Daily Commercial
Tuesday, November 12, 1968

Previous     2   of   4     Next

With the score tied 6-6 and 43 seconds left in the game against Eustis, Johnson faked first inside than
went outside and around the Panthers' Don Ball to slam quarterback Stuart Cottrell to the ground in the
endzone for a safety. It couldn't have come at a better time.

"It was really something," said head coach Wilbur Lofton. "What can you say. It won the game for us. I've
never seen anything like him for his age."

For his performance, Johnson has been named the Daily Commercial Back of the Week.

FOR YOU who haven't heard, Johnson is no ordinary football player. He stands 6-4, weighs 210
pounds, has speed and hits like a tank. And he's slim at 210 pounds, ...built like the perfect football
player.

All this and he's only 14 years old.

"Maybe we shouldn't try to say so much about Johnson," Smith said once. "But he's so great, how can
you help it. He won't get the big head. He likes to play too much."
