Coastal Bank and Trust Player of the Week: Cephus Johnson

CoastalPotWUSETHISONEMOBILE, Ala. (WNSP) – Every week WNSP’s High School Football team will recognize one local player for his outstanding performance on the field. 

This week’s winner is Davidson’s Cephus Johnson. The senior quarterback completed 23 of 35 passes for 428 yards and four touchdowns as his Warriors rallied to defeat the Jackson Aggies by the score of 50-49 on Friday night. Down 42-24 entering the final period, Davidson came through with two touchdowns in the final minute to stun Jackson.

Johnson, who is currently committed to South Alabama, also drew interest from Louisiana-Lafayette and Alabama-Birmingham earlier in the recruiting process.

Davidson (7-1, 5-1) will travel to face the Murphy Panthers (5-3, 3-3) on Friday, October 21 in a regional contest. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.

Congratulations again to Cephus Johnson!
