Buena receiver Robert Johnson committed to play for Northland College in Minnesota. Johnson collected 59 catches for 890 yards and eight touchdowns this year. He had a 200-yard game against Douglas and he had 11 receptions for 180 yards and three TDs against Nogales.
“It means a lot to my family because all their support for me has paid off,” Johnson said. “My plan is to be at this top-rated junior college for a year and move on to a D-I college. I know my parents and my friends will see me play on TV sooner rather than later.”
