Johnathan’s mother and father attended every game. His mother and father have become close to a lot of the team members, often bringing supplies to share with everyone at the game. Johnathan started playing football at the age of eight and has been playing ever since.

Johnathan also had a very good academic career at Oak Park. He also ran track, and weight trains all through the year.

Johnathan thanked, “God for my health and capabilities in football and for my family that is so closely involved in my life.” He also thanked his dad for, “staying on me and teaching me that quitters never win. I also thank my mom for always having my back.” He thanked his coaches, teammates, and teachers for all their support, “Without them I realize that I would not have made it this far.” Johnathan will continue his educational and football career at The University of Illinois in January.
