Spotlight Player

In Flag Football, every play matters.

And for the 5th/6th grade Titans, Dawson Johnson's hustle and determination helped define the season. 

In the regular season finale, Dawson's "never give up" attitude sparked a wild 4th quarter comeback victory.

He started off the 4th quarter with diving flag pull that saved a touchdown inside the five yard line. The Titans team defense made three consecutive stops and rallied with a TD to cut the Chiefs lead to 20-19.

With under three minutes to play, the Titans trailed by one without the ball. In big moments, the stars shine brightest. Dawson intercepted a pass and returned it for a TD to give the Titans their first lead of the 2nd half. Moments later, the Titans celebrated the win and now have momentum heading into the FNL playoffs.

Dawson's leadership was evident all season long. He helps with the defensive assignments and has a burning desire to compete. He doesn't tolerate complacency and strives to make his teammates better.

Off the football field, Dawson is an honor roll student, soccer all-star, and completes dozens of community service hours helping Coachella Valley non-profit groups.

Dawson Johnson is deserving of the Spotlight Player of the Week.
