Nic Johnson finished his high school playing career a champion. The best way you can.
The Pro Vision Academy Warriors of Houston, Texas finished the 2017 season with a 7-1 (5-0 Texas Cristian Athletic League District 1) and beat Tomball Christian (Tomball, TX) 36-27 to win it all.
He caught 33 passes for 585 yards, seven touchdowns and ran the ball three times for 55 yards in 2017.

“Man. It was a feeling that is probably the happiest I’ve ever felt man. I cried for like four days,” Johnson said about the championship win. “I really couldn’t believe that I was able to be a part of an event like that. I haven’t gotten my ring yet but when I do I’ll probably cry again.”
Johnson is now a part of the 2018 Garden City Broncbusters recruiting class. The Broncbusters finished 2017 with an 8-4 (5-2 Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference) record and put up 34.8 points per game.
Nic Johnson and Garden City found one another after he performed well at the Greater Houston Senior Football Showcase. He started receiving attention from Division III football programs and NAIA division schools and that prompted to do more research on junior colleges.
“…I was like I just really want to reach my full potential and get a chance to get recruited again. So, I started searching top junior colleges in the nation and I came across Garden City, so I sent them my film on Twitter along with other junior colleges and two weeks later I got a call and the rest is history.”
Nic Johnson on the field shows speed and elusiveness at six feet, 190 pounds. He also makes plays in space and on film, when he’s gotten the ball, more times than not he has made a play.
He said that his game hasn’t changed much but he has added better vision in reading coverages and became a student of the game.
“Work, work, work. Nothing but work, man. By the time the official season starts I plan to be in that starting O,” he said about his mindset going into 2018 offseason workouts with Garden City.
Nic Johnson has his sights set on winning a championship with the Garden City Broncbusters and even having the best season of his career. Being the best junior college player in the nation would be a bonus as well.
“I feel like a lot of teams are going to feel me when I leave Garden City. Matter of fact I’m going to make them feel me. All the teams that overlooked me and told my head coach that I’m not on the level that they’re looking for. So, I feel sorry for them.”
