Offense-Defense Sports released the first edition of its National Youth and High School Football Rankings and Travis Johnson, 12, of Murrieta, CA was ranked 48th among all 11 and 12 year olds in the country and 14th among defensive lineman as of rankings dated February 25th.
Johnson is 6’1″ 172 pounds and only twelve years old. He works out with military, firefighter and law enforcement trainers at Crossfit Overload. “If you love it enough and want it bad enough, you will work harder than anyone that is trying to take it away from you,” said Johnson, ” I cannot stand knowing that there is someone out there working harder than me to be better.”
Johnson has been playing with the Temecula Titans for the past three years, but will be joining the Murrieta Rams youth football program this fall. He hopes to make the varsity team his freshman year at Vista Murrieta; his goal is to attend UCLA.
“Travis has been given a gift of size and talent,” says coach Ted Johnson, “but more than that, he has potential. Add desire and you have a great student-athlete.”
Offense-Defense Sports has been running full-contact football instructional camps for the past 45 years and currently operates in approximately 40 camp locations nationwide. For more information visit http://www.o-d.com.
