Jake Johnson could do no wrong tonight:
After a few selfless weeks opening up the offense as a major decoy, going nearly 3 games without a touchdown, Juker was due to explode...
Against the Veterans High Warhawks, Johnson didn't just explode, he set a near career high in receptions & yards, while catching his second most TDs (4 in 2019 the career high): 9 catches for 139 yards and 3 TDs, his 7th career multi-TD outing. He nearly had 10 for 182, which would've been a definitive career topper, however the catch was called back due to a penalty elsewhere.
Oconee's QB Jacob Wright, as well as the team's coaching staff, both understand that if they are to take the next step and win the state title after consecutive years in 2nd, Juker has to be a focal point...and he needs to get the ball.
Deciding the game for Oconee, a come from behind epic to go 5-0 on the season, Johnson caught 7 first downs, posted 5 receptions of 19+ yards, and eight gains over 9+, settling matters for Oconee's 36-15 victory over Veterans High.
Check out our exclusive footage and highlights from Jake's father Brad Johnson:
