Quick Q&A




A lot of tennis players look up to Johnson. The former Cougars boys’ basketball player stands 6 feet, 6 inches tall. Here is a closer look at Johnson, who has played both singles and doubles for the Cougars this season:


The best movie I’ve seen in the last year? “Lone Survivor.” It really made me proud to live in a country where men and women will fight that hard for our freedom.


Three words my friends or teammates might use to describe me? Tall, childish and relaxed.


Three songs I never skip on my iPod are … “Soldier” by Gavin DeGraw; “Party in the USA” by Miley Cyrus; “Year 300” by the Jonas Brothers.


How did you get started in sports? I started playing tennis because my mom played in college, and I also wanted to do that. I started playing basketball because I was always tall, and it was a natural fit.


What do you work on most prior to the start of the tennis season? My serve and having a stronger mental game.


What is your most memorable moment as a high school tennis player? Getting third place in doubles in the individual portion of the section [Class 2A, Section 1] tournament, and being one match away from going to state last year.
