Vicksburg Junior High School basketball player Michael Johnson played a great game against Clinton last month.
Johnson scored 14 points on Dec. 14, 2020, in a 45-42 win over the Arrows. He is one of the team’s leading scorers this season and has helped VJHS to a 10-1 record under head coach Jerdon Hardiman.
Although Johnson is a seventh-grader, he plays on the eighth-grade team due to his great skills and athleticism, causing his coaches to move him up to the higher level. He was also the star quarterback for the Gators football team in the fall where he led his team to success.
VJHS will play again Thursday at home against Madison Central.
