Fresh off being crowned a state champion, versatile DeSales quarterback Austin Johnson has another title – Courier-Journal Athlete of the Week.

Johnson won more than 75 percent of the votes cast by Monday morning, earning the nod for role in the Class 2-A state tile game. He rushed for 83 yards and a TD and completed 7 of 11 passes for 87 yards and another score as the Colts defeated Newport Central Catholic 26-0. Oh, and he added two field goals and two extra points.

A new slate of Athlete of the Week nominees will be uploaded here this morning.
