Athlete of the Week: Adam Johnson, Olympic football

Olympic needed a big play in the third quarter of their Friday night game against Bremerton, and Adam Johnson provided the biggest one of the season so far for his team.

With the momentum tilting in favor of his opponent, Johnson hauled in a pass and used his high-level speed to leave the defense in the dust. His 84-yard touchdown helped propel the Trojans to a 49-14 win over Bremerton and a near-certain district playoff berth. Johnson finished the game with three receptions for 108 yards, an interception on defense and two pass breakups.

Johnson was also the top receiver in the West Sound last season as a junior, finishing with 43 receptions for 652 yards and seven touchdowns as well as six interceptions as a defensive back.
