Christ School senior Drew Johnson throws caution to the wind when he throws the football.
The second-year starter for the Greenies has connected on 53 of his 70 attempts (for a 75.7 completion percentage) through two games. With that kind of accuracy and his sheer production (572 yards and six touchdowns with three interceptions), Johnson could be headed for back-to-back 2,000-yard seasons.
The 6-foot, 170-pound Spartanburg, S.C., resident leads all area quarterbacks in yardage at the moment and racked up 2,717 yards with a 61 percentage completion rate as a junior.
Johnson’s most-targeted receivers so far have been Keyvaun Cobb (14 receptions for 139 yards), Jared Letman-Gash (13 receptions for 142 yards and five touchdowns), Tyler Redmond (seven receptions for 98 yards), Kokayi Cobb (seven receptions for 52 yards), Gabe Blevins (six receptions for 61 yards) and Kevin Snyder (six receptions for 52 yards).
The defense has been bouyed by Seth Griswold (6.0 tackles per game), Carson Jones (5.0), Redmond (5.0) and Blevins (4.0).
Christ School (1-1) travels to Heathwood Hall (1-1) on Friday for a 7 p.m. kickoff in Columbia, S.C.
