Johnson enters the season as the starter, but coming up behind him is another impressive athlete whose showing at Saturday's combine was even more eye-popping.

Bryan Hartfield, who is a junior-to-be, ran a 4.34 in the 40-yard dash, which was the fastest time Saturday. Hartfield also jumped the second-highest in the vertical, with a 36-1.

Hartfield's playing time was limited as a sophomore because of shoulder problems, but he said he's been going to physical therapy and the shoulder feels good.

“This being my first combine, I think I did pretty good,” Hartfield said.

As far as the adjustment to a new coach goes, both backs said things are going well with Hall.

Huff's teams at Midwest City were 60-12 in six seasons. He led the Bombers to the playoffs each year. He left to become the first football coach at College Station (Texas) High School.

“I think Coach Hall is a good coach,” Johnson said. “He's a good man, and he's proven that he can win at every level.”
