Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.) 6-7 senior forward Stanley Johnson had 16 points and four rebounds to help USA West defeat Canada 93-77 Thursday in the Nike Global Challenge at Trinity Washington University in Washington, D.C. He has not announced a college choice. Here are five things you may not know about him.
1. Pro athlete who inspires me: Soccer player Wayne Rooney, who played for Manchester United. I started watching him when he was older and he wasn’t as fast as he was in his youth, so he uses skill and agility to beat younger players and he was one of the best strikers in the league for a long time.
2. Question I’d like answered: Why does everybody keep asking me what college I’m going to go to?
3. Musician I’d switch places with: Miguel. He sings really good and if I could sing like him, I could get any girl in the world.
4. People don’t know that I: Like to listen to music and I like shoes. I have a lot of everything. Vans, Converse, Sperrys, Gucci loafers, Jordans, Nikes, everything.
5. First (and only car): A 1998 Jeep Cherokee.
