FOR RELEASE
2010-02-03
Huntington University Soccer Coach Russ Lawson announced that Covenant Christian High School standout, Weston Johnson, is the latest member of the 2010 Huntington University men’s soccer incoming class.

As a center back, Johnson helped anchor Covenant Christian High School to a 37-8-2 record over the past three years. Johnson was named to the All-City Team this year by the Indianapolis Star. He has also played club ball for Westside United, one of Indiana's premiere level clubs.

“The coaching staff is thrilled that Weston has decided to continue his playing career at Huntington,” says Coach Lawson. “His size, touch, and ability to win balls in the air are excellent. This will enable him to make a smooth transition to the physical play and speed of the collegiate game."

Coach Lawson goes on to say, "He is a center back who has the versatility to play all defensive roles and step up into a holding midfield role. Weston is composed with the ball at his feet. He reads the game well and knows when to send the penetrating ball."

Off the field, Weston will enter HU as an honor student, pursuing a Business degree with a minor in Spanish. Johnson is the son of Don and Kristi Johnson from Danville, Indiana.

The Huntington University Foresters compete in 14 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past twelve years, Huntington has produced 70 NAIA All-America honors and 186 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations. U.S. News & World Report ranks Huntington among the best colleges in the Midwest.
