FORD MOTOR COMPANY COMMUNICATIONS PRESS RELEASE
Alto senior Keenan Johnson has been named the Built Ford Tough Texas High School Football Player of the Week for Class 2A. It's a weekly honor that recognizes just one high school athlete in each classification across the state.
Following a sensational junior season, Alto's Keenan Johnson picked up right where he left off.
During last Friday's opener, the senior signal-caller was a one-man wrecking crew as the Yellow Jackets routed Class 3-A ranked Crockett, 60-33.
It didn't take long for Johnson to get going. On the first play from scrimmage, he raced 74 yards for a score, and that was just the beginning.
"After the first snap, he pretty much never looked back," said Coach Paul Gould.
By the time it was over, Keenan had run for 360 yards and seven touchdowns and, for good measure, completed three passes for 40 more yards. On defense, he made three tackles and an interception.
