Cypress Ranch (Houston) senior defensive back Donovan Johnson was voted as the Super 25 Top Star for Week 14, after his spectacular performance that sealed up a conference title.
RESULTS: Super 25 Top Star, Week 14
The 6-foot Johnson came up with two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, as the Mustangs beat Tomball Memorial (Tomball, Texas), 35-14, to secure a conference crown and improve to 10-0. It’s been a productive senior campaign for Johnson, who has three interceptions and three passes defensed.
Johnson beat out Chandler (Ariz.) running back DeCarlos Brooks — who ran for 265 yards, had 80 receiving yards and scored 6 TD’s in a state quarterfinal win over Phoenix Mountain Pointe — by nearly 2,000 votes, garnering 42 percent of the vote to 37 from Brooks. It’s one of the narrowest margins of victory for a Super 25 Top Star this season.
More than 28,000 votes were cast in total.
