John Curtis Christian relied heavily on its ground attack this past season, as is the case annually. The execution was excellent and it helped lead to a Division I Select state title.

A big part of the success equation for the Patriots was Aaron Johnson, Jr, who was very good as a runner and blocker. The 6-foot-1, 210 pound Johnson is headed to Tyler Community College.

Johnson rushed for 712 yards and four touchdowns in 2022. As a power runner with toughness, he presents quite a challenge for any defender to handle. Very strong, Johnson boasts a 500 pound squat and 265 pound power clean.

Johnson runs very well between the tackles but he is also elusive enough to bounce outside. He excels as a lead blocker on running plays.

Johnson also plays a key role as a frequent starter for the excellent John Curtis basketball team.
