Kenneth JohnsonFootball

Zama, Japan

Last week: Played a key role as the Trojans won their homecoming game for the first time since 2003 and improved to 3-4, their best record since 2004, by beating ASIJ 26-0.

Johnson, a senior, ran just 16 times but for 210 yards, including touchdown runs of 2, 15 and 86 yards, the best performance by a Trojans running back in the last four seasons.

“He’s driven. He runs hard. He just keeps those legs going,” said first-year Trojans head coach Steven Merrell, adding that Johnson has picked up his game the past two weeks, both on offense and at defensive end. “He’s realizing the importance of his contributions to the team.”
