Johnson an all-around threat for Eagles

College scouts are raving about Del City offensive lineman Jamelle Naff, and quarterback Chazten Gonzales has already committed to TCU, but the offense might hinge on what Greg Johnson can produce.

As a junior, Johnson averaged nearly five yards per carry while rushing for more than 500 yards and three scores. He also saw some time at wide receiver, adding another 177 yards.

Johnson should get even more looks this season as he splits time at running back with Adrian Fletcher, but he's becoming one of Gonzales' top targets.

"I'll play wherever they need me to," Johnson said. "It doesn't matter to me as long as I'm out there."

Shake-and-bake in the Lawton backfield

Replacing a reliable senior like Charles Smith from last year's Lawton offense didn't look like the easiest task until Deaquan Wojciehowski emerged. A receiver last year, he has been the Wolverines' primary back in an offense loaded with talent at a variety of positions.

"We've moved him over, and he's looked great," coach Randy Breeze said. "He's got a little more shake-and-bake to him than what we've normally had in the past."

Mustang defense progressing

At Mustang, it's typically the offense that pulls to the front, but the defense has taken the lead this season.
