Last week: Scored three touchdowns, all on the ground, as the Falcons (3-0) extended their Pacific-best winning streak to nine games by blanking Osan American 42-0 in a DODDS-Korea contest Friday at Osan American High School.
Johnson, a senior, gained 94 yards on 15 carries to pace a ground game that amassed 230 yards. Johnson ran for touchdowns of 1 and 2 yards in the second quarter, then began the fourth period with a 35-yard scoring scamper.
Falcons coach Julian Harden describes Johnson as a “coach’s dream.”
“He is willing to play in whatever capacity is needed. He is a multi-purpose, relentless, hard-working, self-motivated player who truly believes that is where his rewards lie. He plays for his team.”
Last week: Served as a key element in the Panthers’ two victories, after missing a month’s practice and playing time due to a wrist injury suffered during the summer.
Schrock, a senior, had 11 spike kills and five service aces as Kadena beat Kubasaki 25-15, 25-15, 19-25, 25-18 on Sept. 25 – the Panthers’ first win over the Dragons since 2004. Schrock added seven kills and eight aces on 18-for-19 serving in a 25-8, 20-25, 25-17, 25-16 win over Okinawa Christian International on Thursday.
“Her presence on the court is not only important in terms of skill, but the way she inspires and motivates the team,” first-year Panthers coach Greg Rosenberger said. “A great leader inspires people to have faith in themselves, and that’s what she did.”
