Julian Johnson Waubonsie Valley Athlete Class of 2024 6'5 200

Julian Johnson how was your sophomore season? Sophomore season was great! I had a lot of fun competing with my team. I grew a lot as a player mentally and physically, in fact I’ve grown about 6 inches since freshman year. I had the opportunity to play both ways as TE/DE. I worked my way up to start on varsity at DE by the end of the season. Starting varsity was the highlight of my season because I got to play varsity with my older brother Jalen Johnson before he heads off to NIU to play football. What does football mean to you? I love football! I’ve played since first grade. It’s always been a part of my life. I really enjoy the team aspect and competition of the game. What should college coaches know about you? They should know that I am a hard worker, I bring a positive attitude every day, and I feel I have a very high ceiling with my size speed and length. What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? I feel my size, speed, and length are my strongest traits on the field. 6’5”, 200lbs, 16 years old and still growing. What part of your game have you been working on in the offseason? I’ve really been working on my strength, hands, and my technique on both sides of the ball. Best advice you gotten from your brother about football? My brother taught me to maximize every opportunity I get! Which is great advice as I transition to Waubonsie Valley High School this year due to our district changing boundary lines. I have an opportunity to play football with a lot of guys I grew up with and do something special these next two years. This is a opportunity I plan to fully maximize.
