    Blake Johnson #40 and Michael Tackett #45 both junior linebackers from JCHS. Both are good next year should be very good.

    Both are still juniors. I think Johnson may have the body to play at the next level. I don't know what his speed is but he looks pretty fast for a big guy.
    Tackett will knock your head off,has good speed,and has athletic blood in him. His grandpa played baskettball at UK. his uncle played at Alice Lloyd and could get a full hand above the square.

    Blake Johnson is a BULL! He is a great FB if not the best in the Mountains! Throw in Grim with a little Dab of Blume (2000 yds. 20 + td's this season) and you have the best back filed in the mountains.

    Jake Johnson at Jenkins is a good player on a bad team. I actually think Jake and big Blake from Johnson Central are cousins.

    Shawn Asher kid from North Laurel has to be in that group. He really turned it on at the end of the season when they started getting the ball in his hands. I have no doubt that he will be there go to guy next year.

    Aaron Root from Williamsburg. He averaged over 20 solo tackles per game, nuf said.

    The kid has really stepped it up his senior year.
    He is causing problems for the opposing teams offense and making tackles all over the field. Really glad to see this group of senior linemen growing up. It has made a huge difference and will make a huge difference on the outcome of the season.

    Johnson Central has alot of players that fly under the radar because of the season that Ron Blume is having, not that im not glad he is having this season, but if these players were on some other teams you would be hearing alot about them.

    Blake Johnson: FB/LB. He is a bull that usually takes 3-4 guys to bring down if you are lucky. He is a junior so district, yes you have to play him again next year. Also a great hard nosed LB, probably what he will be scouted for at the college level.

    Micheal Tackett: TE/LB. One of the hardest hitters you will ever see. The boy lives to punish people and make them wish the game was over. Has good speed and good strenght with a 6th sense of where the ball is going. A very solid LB.

    Tommy Taylor: WR/DB. In the beginning of the season, Tommy was more of a offensive threat but the JC coaching staff has started to play him on the defensive side and has helped a young secondary of JC tremendously. At one point in the season he had 8 caughts for 8 TD's. If JC was more of a passing team, you would hear his name alot. On the Defensive side in about the last 5 games, he has had many pass deflections that broke up big plays and about 4 INT's. Tommy has good speed and can jump out of the gym.

    Ian Welch: WR/DB. Just a freshman and is already making strides to be a great one for JC in the future. Already a solid defender in the secondary.

    Shawn Grimm: RB/DE. To look at him you wouldnt think much of him but watch him about 5 plays and you will wonder why he doesnt get more carries. Just a sophomore, he hits the holes at full speed and likes to run over and not around his defenders, although he does still have good agility. Also brings a good pass rush on all QB while trying to throw. Going to be a great player in years to come at JC.

    Chase Richardson: DL. Just a freshman but is going to be a great one. Has a good combination of size, strength, and speed. You will be hearing alot about this boy in the future.

    JC has lots of under the radar players that will be making lots of noise in years to come.

    I agree. Johnson Central is definitely not just Ron Blume. Blake Johnson is a stud on both sides of the ball, and the Golden Eagles definitely have a lot of talent on the defenisve side of the ball. They completely shut down the Tomcats in the 2nd half of their ballgame. That's something you didn't see happen this year, with Russell maybe being the other exception.
