What sports do you play?
I am currently a defensive team captain for Urbana Boys Varsity Soccer, and I have also been a part of Urbana Varsity Track and Field.
What has being a student athlete taught you?
Being a student-athlete has taught me many valuable life lessons. Some of those being failure is a part of the learning process and nothing comes to you without putting in the work.
Favorite moment as a high school athlete?
My favorite moment as a high school athlete was playing on the field with my older brother, Otto Johnson. He has been a huge motivation and inspiration to me both as an athlete and as a person.
A coach/mentor that has inspired you & why?
During my high school career, my coach, Mike Grim, has been a major inspiration to me. He always tells us that we can apply a lot of what we learn from sports to our experiences in the real world. He shares motivational speeches with us all the time, telling us that life happens but it's up to us to decide if we're going to let it push us around or if we're going to get back up and take control. He has been my coach throughout my 4 years of high school soccer, and I couldn't ask for a better soccer mentor.
