Focus 2015: Trevell Johnson
Trevell Johnson didn't take many first-team snaps in 2012, but that hasn't kept his name from being mentioned as a top in-state sophomore. "I really didn't get to play a lot because I had seniors in front of me," said Johnson, a 5-9, 185-pound strong safety (back rover). "I did play special teams and loved that." Johnson attended LSU's spring game with classmate Derrius Guice, who was rewarded with his first offer that day by the Tigers. "Derrius is my best friend," Johnson said. "I felt like I might not have been able to show LSU's coaches much because I didn't have a highlight tape, but my coach from youth football, Donald Berniard, told me their coaches wanted to talk to me. "Coach Berniard had told Coach (Cam) Cameron about me, and Coach Cameron saw me in the local paper. At the spring game, Coach Cameron was talking with Derrius and me, and asking how we're doing, and then he took me to meet Coach Miles." What was Johnson's reaction to meeting Miles? "I enjoyed talking with him a lot," he said. "Coach Miles and Coach Cameron have started recruiting me, and I never thought I'd start getting recruited this early. It's exciting that it's already started." Last weekend, Johnson and Guice helped Catholic's outdoor track and field team cruise to the state championship. The pair of 10th-graders were part of the Bears' first-place 4 X 200 relay team. The Bears rolled up an impressive 116 points, far ahead of runner-up West Jefferson (46). Johnson, who runs a 4.5 in the 40-yard dash, will camp at LSU this summer. The Tigers are currently the sole team of interest for the sophomore. Catholic reached the Class 5A quarterfinals last year in football.
