Johnson Looking To Get To Next Level
Choctaw County is coming off one of their most impressive seasons in the last half decade or more, thanks in large part to a stingy defense. Andrew Johnson was a key member of the Chargers defense that helped lead Choctaw County to a (10-3) record and a 3A-Region 4 title.
The 6'0 170-pound two-way player had an impressive junior campaign, finishing with 31 tackles, three interceptions and six pass deflections.
"It felt good, but I know I could've done better than I expected," Johnson said.
He will be one of many standout athletes competing at the Fortius Project combine on April 21st at Itawamba Community College, and he's ready to show off his skills.
"That I'm a prospect that can play football at a very high level," He replied when asked asked what he wants to prove at the Fortius Project.
Johnson believes the Chargers can have an even better season this upcoming fall, and compete for a championship.
"We are focused on a bigger goal and maintaining high expectations. Always holding each other out throughout the season. And be patient for what God has in plan," Johnson .
In addition to team success, Johnson wants his senior season to be even better than his junior campaign. He is looking to catch the eye of some college coaches.
"My goal is to do better than last season, and earn at least two offers. I want to make it my best season yet, and work to make it to the next level of playing college ball," Johnson told SES Mississippi.
Johnson and Chargers will be worth following this fall as they chase down the 3A crown.
