Athlete of the Week November 9, 2017 - Luke Johnson couldn’t have picked a better linebacker to emulate. The Brainerd Warrior inside linebacker’s favorite football player is Luke Kuechly of the Carolina Panthers. Johnson has become one of the top tacklers in Brainerd program history. As a junior in 2016, he led the Warriors with 163 tackles (solo and assisted combined) in 10 games. He was named to the All-North Central Red Subdistrict and All-Section 8-5A teams and was voted Brainerd’s Defensive Player of the Year. Through 10 games, Johnson has registered a team-high 194 tackles with three interceptions, four pass rushes, one forced fumble and one pass break-up. Warriors head coach Ron Stolski said Johnson’s totals are impressive when you consider he plays on the weak side.
